Use of Cannabis Policy

Use of Cannabis Policy

Centennial College is obligated to provide a safe and healthy working and learning environment for its employees, students, affiliates and guests. Notwithstanding its legalization in Canada, cannabis consumption can be impairing and can affect an individual’s judgement (similar to the consumption of alcohol) and one’s ability to meet work and learning expectations.  The College is committed to a preventative approach to the potential harms of cannabis in the working and learning environment and adopts a health-focused approach, in addition to policy and procedural approach. As such, the College prohibits cannabis consumption in all forms on College property, with an exception for those who have medically endorsed authorization to use cannabis for medical purposes.
