Recreational cannabis is now legal in Canada and many surveys suggest employers are concerned about the potential implications for workplaces. In this presentation, Dr. Nancy Carnide shares preliminary findings of a survey of workers, conducted in June 2018, aimed at understanding patterns of workplace cannabis use, workers' perceptions of the risks and impact of cannabis use at work, and the social norms around such use.

Note that a slidedeck and slidecast of this presentation will not be posted after the presentation. To make sure you learn about Dr. Carnide's final findings from this research, please sign up for IWH News at
