Alberta HR organization strikes workplace cannabis education deal

CPHR Alberta, one of the largest largest human resources associations in Canada, has struck a deal with a cannabis education firm to school businesses on marijuana use and workplace issues.

The deal, struck with Responsible Cannabis Use, gives CPHR Alberta members access to an online course called CannEd at what’s described as an exclusive rate.

“It’s very important to us as a professional association to make sure our members have access to quality, current information about topics like cannabis education. This partnership with RCU provides resources our members can use to support their organizations as HR professionals,” Rod Miller, CEO of CPHR Alberta, says in a news release.

The release also notes that 70 percent of managers believe that they can conduct random drug tests at work if approved by the businesses CEO.

“They cannot,” the release says.
