A discussion about innovations in researching, developing, and disseminating harm reduction information for young people consuming cannabis.

To mark the fourth anniversary of cannabis legalization in Canada, we invite you to attend our hybrid event, Innovations in Harm Reduction for Youth Cannabis Use. We will showcase Canadian cannabis research and education projects designed for and with youth. We will share and discuss new developments in harm reduction, youth-led approaches, and how to be inclusive of the diverse needs of youth who use cannabis. This event will bring together youth experts, advocates, community organizations, and researchers from across the country. Come hear about what’s new and what’s next in youth cannabis use harm reduction!

The event will take place simultaneously online and in-person. This page is for tickets to the in-person portion of the event taking place at Humber College’s Lakeshore campus. If you’d prefer to participate online, you can sign up for the webinar here.
