Grass on the Hill

Grass on the Hill – the Cannabis Leaders Summit and Lobby Day – is bringing leaders from across Canada’s cannabis industry to Ottawa to address the challenges facing licensed producers and processors. In the lead up to the Statutory Review of the Cannabis Act, Grass on the Hill is a two-day event designed to inform, provoke and drive changes to support the financial viability of cannabis license holders.

Day 1: Leadership Conference

Thought-provoking programming, including Ministers, MPs and other key influencers.

  • Connect with other cannabis-sector leaders
  • Discuss key policy issues affecting our industry
  • Gain insights into current public opinion research on Cannabis
  • Build your GR skills with insights on advocacy approaches and the mechanisms of Parliament and Government

Morning sessions give attendees an opportunity to share their thoughts and priorities. Afternoon sessions focus on key policy issues and best practices for engaging with political decision-makers.

Day 2: Lobby Day

Equipped with the insights and tactics from our leadership day, Cannabis industry leaders and influencers will meet with as many MPs and government stakeholders as possible to discuss The 5 Big Asks.
