Get your feedback in by March 17

Canada’s legalization of cannabis in 2018 means fewer Albertans are asking their physicians for medical cannabis authorizations. As a result, CPSA has proposed amendments to our standard of practice on Cannabis for Medical Purposes to ensure our expectations of physicians are still reasonable and appropriate.

Find out more about the recommended changes and provide your feedback by visiting our Consultation 020 webpage. This consultation closes on Wednesday, March 17 and the amended standard reflecting your feedback will go to CPSA Council for approval in May.
