Canadian Cannabis Awards 2017
About the Canadian Cannabis Awards
At Lift, they are proud of their history as champions of the Canadian cannabis industry, and excited to bring you the fourth annual Canadian Cannabis Awards. In the world of legal cannabis, there’s arguably nowhere more exciting than Canada right now. The medical industry is hitting its stride, legalization is on the horizon and opportunities are everywhere. New industries don’t just birth themselves, and at Lift, they know that behind every new opportunity, from individual job postings to the creation of entire companies, talented people are at work. The Canadian Cannabis Awards recognize that talent, celebrating the champions who have brought us to this point and those who will propel us into the future of this burgeoning field.
This is the CCAs’ fourth year, and its first gala. The awards have grown alongside the industry, born from the desire to highlight the tremendous people, products and producers in Canadian cannabis. The CCAs started as a small, but influential online platform in 2014. Each year we’ve added new awards categories, reflecting—and increasingly, influencing— the dynamism of the evolving cannabis sector.
The Canadian cannabis sector is predicted to be a $22 billion economy, with growth rates on par with broadband internet in the early 2000s, and cable in the 1990s. At Lift, we believe it’s high time that our awards reflect the magnitude of this effort and the importance of this economic contribution. That’s why we’re proud to bring you the first CCA gala, celebrating a year of firsts, with many more to come.
Lift is Canada’s leading cannabis media and technology platform. Through our national events, the industry’s leading publications, and lift.co – the largest database of medical cannabis products, reviews and patients in Canada – Lift is the voice of Canadian cannabis.
