Possible mandatory drug testing for certain jobs says government
The Trudeau government have been looking into implementing mandatory drug testing for certain workplaces. This will coincide with the legalization of cannabis coming this summer.
There has been some division about whether or not to implement mandatory drug testing between the government officials, labour groups and employers. At this time there is no federal labour rule on alcohol and drug testing outside of certain employers. (i.e. military) successive governments since the late 1980s have not mentioned much on this issue.
