what you need to know about cannabis and campus

NorQuest College is a smoke-free campus. See the Smoke-Free Campus Policy to learn more.

If you do leave campus to consume cannabis, be respectful of the college's neighbours and know the city, provincial, and national laws around consumption. At our Edmonton campuses, you cannot smoke within 10 metres from a commercial business’s doorways, window, or air intake (including the loading docks). Learn where you legally can and cannot smoke cannabis on the City of Edmonton's Cannabis Rules website.

Also be mindful of the college’s student impairment policy/procedure that is enforceable when you are at the college. Students have a responsibility to refrain from inappropriate possession or consumption of any intoxicating substance, or functioning under the influence of any intoxicating substance, enforceable through the Non-Academic Misconduct Procedure.

Be prepared and in the know

It's important for you to stay up to date on campus news and be prepared in the event of an incident or emergency. Sign up for NorQuest College's emergency mass notification system today to get important updates on your mobile device. And don't forget to review our campus safety and security information.
