Cannabis awareness

Legalization of Cannabis

In April 2017, the Government of Canada presented the Cannabis Act and introduced amendments to the Criminal Code to make non-medical cannabis legal in Canada as of October 17, 2018. As a result, the University of Victoria has been proactively working on ways to manage the impact of this transition to ensure the UVic community is well-informed of potential changes to the campus through relevant policies and procedures.

Informational sessions for departmental or faculty meetings with our Training Specialist will be available starting September 18, 2018. This 15-20 minute presentation will address UVic’s response to legalization, proposed educational programming on Cannabis, and will look to create an open dialogue about health promotion and harm reduction.
