NICHE Canada has been hosting a series of forums across Canada that organizers say are “focused on providing people with meaningful and practical information about legalization, and how people can adapt to the changes and succeed in this new environment.” Now, the event is headed to Vancouver. On Nov. 27, NICHE Canada and Cannabis Wise will host the latest iteration of its ‘Cannabis & Our Community’ event at the Croatian Cultural Centre. Rising Tide Consultants is pleased to be taking part in the Thought-Leaders Panel. “We’re at a turning point in history in terms of cannabis,” says Bert Hick, President and CEO of Rising Tide. “We are committed to ensuring our clients stay informed with critical updates and strategies to navigate the new landscape, and this conference is one way to facilitate that commitment.” See also: Positive momentum on the cannabis retail licensing front Organizers say these forums aim to target the needs of communities and bring together experts from a variety of sectors, including government, work safety, health care, education, legal and the cannabis industry for a “robust conversation about the impacts of legalization and what to expect moving forward,” given the changes are complicated, and in some cases, still being rolled out. The Vancouver conference will explore the current regulatory framework, address issues around community health and safety, and highlight how businesses and communities can capitalize on the opportunities available in the region. Health Canada is one of the organizations speaking at the forum to provide an update and answer questions on the current regulatory framework and discuss what’s in store for 2019. Representatives from the Province of British Columbia and the City of Vancouver will also be speaking at the event to provide insights on the local and provincial landscape: From new retail stores and land use planning, to unlicensed dispensaries, what happens at the local level has a big impact on the national regime. “There is still a great deal of uncertainty across our country,” event organizers say. “Our goal is to engage people in a format that they are comfortable with and bridge the cannabis knowledge gap by advancing education and awareness about the industry. “It is particularly important to create constructive dialogue with those who have not been part of the cannabis conversation,” organizers add. “Communication and collaboration will not only build bridges within the industry and help ensure the successful implementation of a legalized cannabis regime, it’s the only way to break down the walls of stigmatization.” The event is set for Nov. 27, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Croatian Cultural Centre (3250 Commercial Dr., Vancouver).
