It’s been one year since the legalization of non-medical cannabis in Canada. Over the last year, the industry has undergone significant transformation: nearly 60 federal production licenses have been issued in British Columbia alone. Evidence so far indicates many small-scale producers have faced unique barriers to entering and succeeding in Canada’s licensed cannabis framework. This webinar provides entrepreneurs and communities interested in small-scale cannabis production with an overview of the regulatory framework, shares supports available to small-scale cannabis businesses through the Community Futures network, and discusses tips and insights learned from a successful micro-cultivation license holder.
Speakers: A representative from B.C.’s Cannabis Legalization & Regulation Secretariat; Shannon Ross, a Cannabis Business Transition Advisor with Community Futures of Central Kootenay; Tamara Follett, one of Canada’s first federally-licensed micro-cultivators
