CNAR presents Quashing the Stigma:
A Webinar on Addiction, Mental Illness & Accommodation
Regulators and professionals increasingly
recognize mental health as a fact of life to be discussed, addressed,
and accommodated. This round-table discussion will aim to provide
recommendations on potential and actual changes that may be appropriate
for regulators during investigations and potential prosecutions of
members. The panel will address the evolving approach to mental health
in the context of addiction and, in particular, as it relates the
legalization of cannabis and the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will
also consider differences between a regulator’s duty to accommodate and
the duty of an employer, such as a hospital or medical clinic.
This highly-rated session from CNAR's 2019 Annual Conference features (from L-R) Ben Kates, Associate, Stockwoods LLP; Emily Graham, Legal Counsel, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario; Zohar Levy, Partner, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP; and Daniel Naymark, Principal, Naymark Law.
