Marijuana and the Workplace

The legalization of recreational cannabis (marijuana) on October 17, 2018 requires Ontario employers to prepare for a new regulatory landscape.

Under the legislation, which makes amendments to the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, the use of recreational cannabis in workplaces is banned. Similar to tobacco, employers are required to take active steps to enforce the ban. As such, many organizations are moving to include cannabis use and its implications in their existing health and safety policies and programs.
