The legalization of recreational cannabis last October made an impression, drawing the whole world’s attention to Canada.

The Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) is part of an almost non-existent industry that does not enjoy consensus. Working in this ambiguous context and confronted with several operational, financial and public relations issues, the team responsible for setting up the SQDC used the best practices in business and management to take on these Herculean tasks.

As we approach the first anniversary of the legalization of cannabis, Jean-François Bergeron, President and CEO of the SQDC, will tell you all about this exploit, of which the Société is more than a little proud.
