Introduction and Overview of New Cannabis LegislationPosted
On October 17th, 2018 federal legislation will come into effect to legalize marijuana in Canada. Accompanying this legislation, the Cannabis Distribution Act, and the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act, will come into force in BC to regulate the production, distribution, sale, and possession of cannabis on a provincial level, as well as amend certain sections of the Residential Tenancy Act. The policy document we developed is intended to help non-profit housing providers navigate these legislative and social changes.
We appreciate the assistance of Grant Haddock of Haddock & Company, who assisted with interpreting the new legislation and drafted the tenancy agreement wording provided above.
