Welcome to the Cannabis Canada Association
Formerly the Canadian Medical Cannabis Industry Association (CMCIA), we have changed our name to Cannabis Canada Association to be consistent with our new mandate/purpose developed within our strategic plan.
Collectively we represent the licensed producers of cannabis for medical purposes as licensed and regulated by the Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) and the Controlled Substance and Tobacco branch within.
Our members have been working in the area of medical cannabis for many years, during this time we have developed significant knowledge and expertise in the field of medical cannabis. First and foremost our commitment is to our patients. With the industry coming together in a formalized way, we will be able to serve the needs of our patients, work with key stakeholders, and grow the industry to meet the demand for safe product across the country.
As of April 1st, 2014, the government, through Health Canada has introduced a new regulatory framework (Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulation – MMPR) in which the industry will grow. Currently the CCA represents the majority of Licensed Producers in Canada. These are exciting times, and as a voice of Licensed Producers (LPs), we look forward to updating you on the journey.
