Consumption of Cannabis

Waterloo Region to help implement cannabis legislation

Waterloo Regional Council approved amending the Code of Use By-law to regulate the smoking of recreational cannabis on Regional facilities. Council also approved amending the Smoke-free policy to prevent the smoking of cannabis in Regionally-owned community housing units. The consumption of cannabis will become legal in Ontario on October 17, 2018.

The Region’s Cannabis Working Group (CWG) has been reviewing policies, procedures and by-laws to determine what changes must be made prior to the cannabis legalization date. Smoking of non-medical/recreational cannabis will be prohibited on Regional property, unless there is a designated tenant or resident cannabis smoking area on Community Housing or Sunnyside property. Regional employees will not be allowed to smoke cannabis on Regional properties unless there is an accommodation for medical reasons.
