As Canada's new cannabis law takes effect, we would like to provide you information the use of cannabis in or around Grand River Hospital facilities.
The Smoke Free Ontario Act prohibits smoking or vaping tobacco in hospital buildings and on property. The Government of Ontario recently extended the Act to similarly prohibit smoking or vaping of cannabis in hospital buildings or on the property.
Therefore anyone seeking to smoke or vape tobacco or cannabis must do so away from Grand River Hospital property.
With respect to the medical use of cannabis, patients receiving care at GRH should discuss their situation with their physician as each situation is unique.
