We’re not sure when, but we know it’s coming. Legalized cannabis in social housing remains a concern for many housing administrators. For social housing administrators, there are many unknowns including its implications for operating and managing the housing asset and tenancies.

This webinar is designed to inform and address considerations with respect to regulation and insurance as they relate to social housing. Speakers will share their insights about the regulatory areas that housing providers should be aware of and the implications from a property risk management perspective.

You will learn about:

  • the Canadian legislation, government plans and timelines for legalization
  • the areas of obligations- human rights, tenant/member & buildings
  • property management issues (community, property damage, costs and liability)
  • property risk management implications
  • practical measures for managing risk

This is webinar is designed for housing administrators, housing providers, property management staff and Boards to help them understand and make sense of the cannabis law reform to inform their operating and administration policy and practices.
