BMOFG Pensioned Employees - Central Ontario Chapter - Summer Quarterly Meeting

June 8, 2018

Our next Quarterly Meeting will be held on Thursday July 5th, 2018 at 1pm at the IFL.

At our July meeting we will be joined by Mr. Andrew Jordon, Regional Manager, Greater Toronto Area, Canadian Cannabis Clinics. 

Although July represents the intended legalization of cannabis, it has already been approved for and legal for,  medical purposes. We have invited Andrew to talk to us about:

  • Current legislation
  • Medical cannabis and who it can benefit
  • Canadian cannabis clinics - locations and process at the clinics
  • Cannabis as an alternative to prescription and over-the-counter medications in controlling pain (and their many negative side-effects)
  • Becoming informed -- Myth versus fact

This will be an informative and timely opportunity for our members. Please join us and bring your questions.

We hope to see you on July 5th. The meeting agenda is attached.   CLICK HERE
