It’s been a big year of growth for Canadian provinces in cannabis, and it’s time we took a breath. On Monday, December 16, CannaWrite along with other industry partners is pleased to invite women and industry allies to the “Cannabis Industry Networking: Women and Allies of the GTHA.” This event will be an opportunity for us to get together and share our journeys over the last year, while making important connections within the Ontario cannabis scene that will help move cannabis forward nationally. This is a 19+ event.
It’s time to break bread and make space to have important (and even difficult) conversations about how we can lift up and champion the successes, plans, dreams and hopes of womxn in this industry. In the true spirit of sisterhood, community and wellness, let’s come together over our shared love for this incredible plant! Event organizers are deeply committed to creating a safe(r) space for all attendees, especially those who are often most marginalized from these spaces and conversations, including gender diverse folks, BIPOC and those whose experiences are rooted in the legacy market.

– Silent auction (supporting women-serving agencies in Hamilton)
– Panel Discussion on “The Future of Medical and Retail Cannabis 2.0” featuring the following brilliant women:
