our initiatives

open dialogues,
open minds

Here’s a deeper look at what the CCRU is doing to make a change for retailers across Canada.

educational resources for retailers

All resources published by the CCRU have been developed to support cannabis retailers. Our publications educate cannabis workers and organizations on the safe practice of selling cannabis, operating retail stores, promoting responsible use and harm reduction, and more.

open dialogue

We host events with members and industry professionals to develop an open dialogue about cannabis and the best practices for promoting safety in Canada’s communities.


The CCRU distributes Health Canada compliant child-safety bags to its retail members to help keep cannabis out of the hands of minors.

public policy & advocacy

Members of our union are advocates for the right to secure cannabis distribution. We’ve made it our mission to build the conversation around cannabis policy so the voices of our members can be heard.
