Medical Cannabis Certificate Program 

Home / Program Details

When Health Canada introduced the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) in March 2014, there were significant changes in the way Canadians access medical cannabis.

In August 2016, the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) took effect, with the goal of providing accessible and affordable access to medical cannabis.

This program is designed to help you better understand the key aspects of prescribing medical cannabis.
