Algonquin college will be moving toward smoke free campuses in Ottawa, Perth and Pembroke.

President, Cheryl Jensen posted an update on the Algonquin college website stating that they will have a new interim policy in place from Oct. 15, 2018 until Jan. 1, 2019.

Jensen writes, this comes as a result of the recent Ontario Government introduction of Bill 36, Cannabis Statute Law Amendment Act, 2018 that will allow cannabis smoking wherever tobacco is permitted.
