Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario approves expanded CannSell content in recognition of its role as the exclusive budtender training certification in Ontario
MADD Canada continues its long-standing relationship with Lift & Co.
TORONTO, Dec. 03, 2019 — Lift & Co. (TSXV: LIFT) (OTCQB: LFCOF), in partnership with MADD Canada, is pleased to announce the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has approved a new module as part of the CannSell retail certification. This new continuing education module will be mandatory for existing certification holders in the province, as the responsible sale of new cannabis formats — edibles, extracts and topicals – is expected to commence soon.
The new content focuses on the responsible sale and consumption of cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals. Specifically, the training includes basic knowledge about these new classes of cannabis, explains how consumption methods affect consumer experience, outlines recommendations for responsible use and onset, and requirements for encouraging and ensuring the responsible sale and consumption of these cannabis products.
Effective January 2, 2020 the existing CannSell program will be updated with the new content and cost $64.99 +HST. For a limited time from January 2 – 15, 2020, existing CannSell certificate holders will be able to complete the standalone new content for free or for $10.00 +HST thereafter.
All Ontario cannabis retail budtenders, store managers and store authorization holders are required to be CannSell certified in order to legally work in an Ontario cannabis retail location. All employees certified before January 2, 2020 will be required to update their certification by completing this new module from CannSell as a standalone course.
As previously reported in BNN, Ontario is expected to lift the cap on the number of retail outlets. As the sole approved certification in the province, the Company and its partner MADD Canada look forward to continued growth in the country’s most populous province. To date, CannSell is available in a total of eight Canadian jurisdictions.
