Cannabis in Canada

  • CIC Cambridge, Mosaic, 3rd floor 245 Main Street Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

Join the CENE for a conversation about the rapidly growing Canadian cannabis industry and its business and entrepreneurship opportunities. Canada is only the second country to legalize medicinal and recreational use of cannabis, creating a brand-new market for Canadian entrepreneurs to explore. Our featured speakers will discuss the current state of the cannabis industry and business potential for entrepreneurs.

Panelists will discuss multiple questions, including:

  • What unique opportunities exist in Canada for cannabis business?

  • What best practices from the Canadian market can be applied in Massachusetts?

  • What gaps exist in the market for entrepreneurs to fill?

What are Canada’s and Massachusetts’ strategies to include communities disproportionately affected by incarceration before decriminalization?

The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A period and mingling with CENE’s community of global Canadians. All friends of Canada are invited to attend. A beverages and light snacks will be available.
