On October 17, 2018, Canada took the monumental step to legalize cannabis for non-medical use, and cannabis became available in licensed stores throughout Manitoba. Smart Choices is a responsible sales training program for Manitoba's cannabis retailers. Anyone involved in the sale, delivery or distribution of cannabis must have this certification.
The goal of the Smart Choices is to increase public safety. This training will help people who work at licensed cannabis stores understand the legal requirements when selling cannabis, while establishing consistent social responsibility standards for stores across the province. Smart Choices focuses on providing facts about cannabis and lower-risk use, and on teaching retailers how to identify and refuse sales to intoxicated customers and young persons under the age of 19. Smart Choices certification will be valid for five years.
Our Cannabis Retail Certification contains 4 modules:
- Understanding Cannabis Risks
- Cannabis Myths and Lower-Risk Use
- Identifying and Responding to Intoxication
- Young Persons and Identification
