  • Share

Careers in the cannabis industry are in hot pursuit as Canada prepares itself for recreational legalization in the Summer of 2018. This highly anticipated, economy-changing legalization is expected to greatly benefit Canada’s economy, and is expected to help reduce unemployment with its estimated 150,000 new jobs.
Business owners are looking forward to capitalizing on the rising cannabis industry as they gear up for legal, licensed sales of recreational (and medicinal) cannabis.
Job seekers can expect to be presented with unique, challenging, dynamic and exciting opportunities to work in the cannabis industry, complete with competitive salaries that are comparable to the lucrative salaries in the pharmaceuticals industry.

Why should one consider a professional career in (or a business endeavour in) the cannabis industry?

Canada’s legalization of recreational cannabis is confirmed nationwide for Summer of 2018. Early predictions estimate the retail market to be valued between $5.5 and $5.8 annually. Already, Canada has more than 85 government-authorized, licensed producers, and that number is expected to exponentially increase. With legalization only a few short months away, the industry is readying itself to meet the rise in demand. The creation of jobs in the cannabis sector is necessary to fulfill the needs of the market, so those who pursue a career in cannabis will have an abundance of opportunity at their fingertips. Not only is the cannabis industry lucrative, but it’s also a dynamic and unique industry. Needless to say, it’s incredible if you get to work in an industry that is making waves, and making history for Canada.

While some businesses will focus on recreational cannabis sales, other businesses will produce cannabis and provide quality-assurance testing, and other businesses will focus on spreading the word on the wellness and health benefits of cannabis. Since cannabis is a natural remedy for several health conditions, it goes without saying that some businesses will opt to focus on the healing and medicinal side of marketing. It goes without saying that there are plenty of different business opportunities in this sector, all of which have ample opportunity to greatly succeed.
