As of October 17, 2018 it is now legal to use cannabis (marijuana) in Canada.
To buy, possess or use cannabis, you must be of legal age (19+ years old in Ontario).
At SCSS with respect to cannabis, it will be business as usual. Any student possessing or using cannabis on school property, selling or providing cannabis to youth on school property, or is under the influence of cannabis while on school property will face consequences (ranging from suspension to expulsion). Police will be notified and students may be referred to a Diversions Program.
We expect our students to continue to make good choices regarding cannabis use and participation at school.
We acknowledge that our school lies on the traditional lands of the Anishnaabe and Haudenosaunee people, who have been the stewards of this land since the beginning. In recognition of this, may we work towards a positive, constructive relationship between the Indigenous people of Canada and ourselves.
