About CTAC
"The Current system of marijuana prohibition does not work"

-Liberal Party of Canada Campaign Platform, 2015 Federal Election

  • What's not working

    What's not working?

    The Federal Government intends to reform Canada's marijuana laws. What's not working, and what improvements are needed?

  • Protecting Youth

    Protect the Youth.

    Marijuana prohibition does not prevent young people from using marijuana and too many Canadians end up with criminal records for possessing small amounts of the drug.

  • Save Federal Resources

    Save Federal Resources.

    Arresting and prosecuting marijuana prohibition offenses is expensive for our criminal justice system. It traps too many Canadians in the criminal justice system for minor, non-violent offenses.

  • Safer Communities

    Stop the Black Market.

    The proceeds from the illegal drug trade support organized crime and greater threats to public safety, like human trafficking and hard drugs.

    Together with industry leaders, The Cannabis Trade Alliance of Canada (CTAC) is committed to working with legislators and regulators in government to develop a sustainable, safe, and ethical cannabis industry.

About CTAC

Canada is poised to become the first of the G7 to legalize and regulate cannabis on a federal level, and with this comes incredible responsibility.

Working with Government

Together with industry leaders, The Cannabis Trade Alliance of Canada (CTAC) is committed to working with legislators and regulators in government to develop a sustainable, safe, and ethical cannabis industry.

Who we Represent

The CTAC represents a wide spectrum of stakeholders in the cannabis industry. We believe transparent guidelines must be balanced with inclusiveness and a willingness to provide all stakeholders a voice.

Canada's Future

A successful model for Canada's cannabis industry must be built upon a foundation of evidence-based regulations. These regulations must protect the interests of medical patients, give adult users access to a healthy, competitive market and create economic opportunities for the middle class.
