The legalization of cannabis in Canada has brought with it a conundrum for the indigenous peoples. A tough decision now faces you: do you want to get involved in this sector as an additional source of revenue or should you not get involved in a not-so-stabilised industry?

Infonex’s Cannabis & Indigenous Communities event in Vancouver is designed to tackle the very many issues and opportunities that the cannabis sector poses with a focus on:

  • Jurisdictional issues between the province and you
  • Impact on vulnerable groups already dealing with addictions
  • Law enforcement of record?
  • Policies and processes involved
  • Partnering with licensed producers

Our two-day training event, led by industry experts in the cannabis industry, aims to decode the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for you should you choose to engage with this booming sector.
