Waterstone Human Capital's national program recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for fostering positive corporate cultures. New for 2019, an Industry Leaders category was introduced to the Canada's Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ program to recognize an organization within a specific industry that has made an outstanding commitment to corporate culture within its first few years of operation. Canopy is proud to win this inaugural award.
The Canadian Marketing Association has long served as a key voice of the marketing profession in Canada. The CMA's recognized Tweed in the Consumer Products: Brand Building category for the 'Hi' educational campaign, which facilitated conversations with those interested in or curious about cannabis in a welcoming and inclusive manner.
Tweed also took home two awards for Social Causes: Business Impact and Cannabis Marketing for the 'Don't Drive High' campaign in partnership with MADD and Uber. This nationwide awareness campaign highlighted the dangers of impaired driving and provided 101 ideas of things to do instead of driving high, with the goal of ensuring every single Canadian knows they should never drive high.
