CANNP will host a Power Hour on January 27th at 1 pm EST featuring lawyer Glenn Rumbell who will share insight on how to practice lawfully in Canada and highlight privacy issues. Glenn will also entertain questions from the Membership. Be sure to hold your space.


CANNP is taking the administrative load off some of our main insurers by agreeing to provide an updated list of Members at the beginning of every month. This means if a Member is late renewing, there is the potential that an insurance claim will be rejected. We have informed the Membership of this change and hope that everyone renews on a timely basis.
