Join us in

On October 17, 2018, Canada became the first G7 country to legalize cannabis on a national level.

Since that time, unprecedented levels of capital, investment, research and innovation have shaped Canada's cannabis market into a global leader. 

In order to maintain that first-mover advantage, smart, strategic public policy will continue to play a pivotal role in the years to come. 

Join Canada 2020 on the anniversary of legalization for Canadian Grown, The 2020 Cannabis Public Policy Conference, for an in-depth look at the policy, scientific and business forces shaping Canada's new cannabis industry.
