On October 17, 2018 the recreational use of marijuana became legal in Canada. Employers need to amend their workplace policies and practices related to the recreational use of drugs and alcohol to include the use of recreational marijuana.
Employers should ensure that they have both an updated Drug and Alcohol Policy which includes language around Fit for Duty, and an Off-Duty Conduct Policy that governs employee behaviour both in and out of the workplace during the workday. Employers need to be careful to differentiate between the use of marijuana for recreational and medicinal purposes as an employee’s right to use medicinal marijuana is protected under both Human Rights legislation and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
