To ensure all departments working with cannabis and controlled substance do so in a safe and compliant manner that conforms to all rules and regulations set out by Health Canada and McGill.
This is applicable to all cannabis and controlled substance research being conducted at McGill University (excluding affiliated hospitals or institutions or to McGill University-affiliated research institutes and centers. These affiliated institutes are managed by their internal department compliance).
The cannabis and controlled substance compliance program was implemented to maintain compliance with federal regulation and to help facilitate the application process for the required license. The program also aims to protect the University and its researchers from any noncompliance infractions that may otherwise not be known by the research community. For this reason, a mandatory training is required prior to acquiring, using, and disposing these products. This can be done while any permit acquisition requests are being processed.
