The Cannabis Act indicates a number of key individuals that must be designated by license holders depending on the operational activities. These positions include Quality Assurance Person (QAP), Master Grower (MG), Head of Security (HS), and Responsible Person (RP), Head of R&D, and Head of Laboratory.
Every micro and standard license producer must have a designated Master Grower (MG), Quality Assurance Person (QAP), Responsible Person (RP), and Head of Security (HS) who must obtain security clearance through the CTLS process.
All the key personnel must have an appropriate level of educational qualification, adequate training, and relevant experience to be in the key roles. As per Health Canada’s guide, “This may include letters of reference, a copy of a diploma or certificate and any other documentation supporting their qualifications, training, and experience”. The NACPT cannabis key personnel webinars are carefully curated to impart industry-relevant knowledge to be successful in the industry.
