OUR COMMITMENT TO SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Social Responsibility is embedded in the Ontario Cannabis Store’s mandate and is fundamental to achieving our vision: to grow Canada’s largest and most vibrant cannabis marketplace.
As a Crown Agency of the Government of Ontario, we are determined to operate our business in a way that promotes the responsible consumption of cannabis, while protecting youth and vulnerable populations. This is a mandated responsibility we take seriously. Our purpose-driven values will guide us to delivering on our strategy.
After conducting online stakeholder and public consultations, and keeping our duty to the people of Ontario in mind, we have focused our social responsibility efforts on three key pillars for 2021-2024:
1. Sustainability: Establishing a Foundation for Sustainability
2. Inclusion: Creating a Diverse & Inclusive Industry
3. Knowledge: Advancing Cannabis Knowledge & Promoting Responsible Consumption
As a public agency, we are committed to corporate transparency and will publish reports outlining our progress, as well as our impact. We anticipate the first report will be published in the summer of 2022.
