The Canadian Cannabis Act is set to come into effect on October 17, 2018.  It is important for companies and business travellers alike, to understand the critical business travel implications for the legalization of marijuana in Canada.  In this session, legal expert Roxanne Israel will address the up-to-the-minute intelligence around Cannabis legalization, what it means for employee privacy issues, prior use implications, and US cross-border & immigration concerns.  Joining her, travel buyers for major Canadian Corporations, Sharlene Ketwaroo-Nanoo of Rogers Communications and Shelly Lewchuk of Canadian Natural Resources, will share learned steps to take on employee traveller considerations, along with internal stake holder engagement for revisions of travel policy and drug & alcohol policy.  This session will provide the latest legal perspectives and arm you with the critical information to take back to your companies, in effort to be as best prepared for this significant change.
