Policy & Pint
Discuss and debate the legalization of non-medical cannabis
Join IPAC Vancouver in launching “Policy and Pint” – a new, interactive series engaging important discussions, questions and debates on public policy and hot topics impacting Canadian and international public administration and government relations.
The evening will feature engaging dialogue, networking, $5.50 pints and 20% food discount!
February 22, 2018
The Pint Public House
455 Abbott St, Vancouver
Tickets only $5!
The first feature discussion is on recreational cannabis being legalized in Canada by July 2018. While the federal legislation proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government will regulate cannabis production, the details of who can sell it and who can buy it will be largely left up to the country’s provinces. As time progresses, more and more questions are arising and the answers are still evolving.

Responsive Research in an Era of Reconciliation
March 9, 2018
4:00 - 6:00 PM
Indigenous Services Canada
1138 Melville Street, Vancouver
This session is part of a Reconciliation Dialogue Series sponsored by the IPAC Vancouver Group. Please join us for an informative discussion and dialogue followed by a question and answer period and networking.
The recommendations of the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission have generated responses at all levels of government and across all post-secondary and many non-profit institutions. Questions are being raised about how to address the impacts of residential schools and to support Indigenous communities healing from the impacts of colonization. In an era of reconciliation and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, understanding what constitutes responsive research is an important consideration for working in partnership with Indigenous groups and communities. Strong local community relationships and a deeper understanding of cultural protocols is a key starting point from which to build progressive partnerships and make meaningful investments that focus on positive change.
Through Responsive Research you will understand how research based in community partnerships can provide gender-disaggregated data to support policy analysts in the completion of gender equality analysis of programs and policy which lead to more culturally informed socio-economic, health and environmental outcomes.
After this session you will:
