Business and career opportunities within Canada's cannabis industry are expanding. In response to the growth of this sector and increasing labour needs, Assiniboine Community College is teaming up with Durham College to offer an online Cannabis Industry Specialization program.

The part-time online program has been designed in partnership with industry leaders to provide participants with crucial insights into the complexity of this developing field. Throughout the program, students will become familiar with industry-specific operations and supply chain management as well as the ethical considerations of medical and recreational cannabis use.

Along with learning the fundamentals of cannabis business operations, students will gain valuable insights into the plant's chemistry and the regulatory framework surrounding this industry.

Career paths in the cannabis industry can include positions in quality management, marketing and risk management.

The online format will include video sessions, coursework and quizzes. To receive a document of achievement, students will complete four courses and five micro-courses (equivalent to one course).
