OCS launches ‘Good All Around’ social impact platform

September 14, 2023 (TORONTO) – The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) announced today the launch of its new social impact platform, Good All Around.

Visitors of OCS.ca/GoodAllAround will find OCS’s social responsibility content in one convenient location. It connects Ontarians to the benefits and contributions of the legal cannabis framework through investments in socially responsible initiatives, innovative community partnerships and open access to fact-based, educational information.

 

Good All Around is informed by three pillars of social responsibility: sustainability, inclusion and knowledge. This work includes the Cannabis Made Clear education hub, the Social Impact Fund and the 2021-24 Social Responsibility Strategy. Good All Around is part of OCS’s commitment to prioritize social responsibility as we enable a vibrant cannabis marketplace.

Early in 2024, the OCS is planning to deliver its first Social Impact Report through Good All Around, recapping the evolution and impact of its social responsibility work since the execution of its Strategy in 2021.
