Government Relations Director at MMJ Canada
Jamie Shaw currently serves as Government Relations Director for MMJ Canada, Director for the BC Independent Cannabis Association, and an advisor to NICHE Canada. She is a former director of the BC Compassion Club Society, and former President of the Canadian Association of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries. She co-founded the first Canadian chapter of Women Grow, has worked with the Vancouver School Board and the Canadian AIDS Society on cannabis education, and is one of the authors of the Lift Retail Cannabis Training Course. Jamie’s testimony in the Allard trial was deemed ‘very important’ by Justice Phelan, and led to the quote ‘dispensaries are at the heart of access.” She lobbied successfully for dispensary regulations in Vancouver, and other BC Municipalities, and consulted with Vancouver, Victoria, and others on the crafting of said regulations.
