Revised policy on Alcohol, Cannabis and Tobacco takes effect Oct. 17, 2018

Cannabis is now legal in Canada. At TRU campuses, however, non-medicinal (recreational) use of cannabis remains prohibited. This includes student residences. There are exceptions in TRU's policy for those who require medicinal cannabis as authorized by a doctor, and the use of cannabis for teaching or research purposes with prior written university approval. TRU took into account varying perspectives when drafting this policy, with a focus on creating a safe and healthy campus environment for everyone—one where we can learn, teach and work at our best.
