Edmonton Cannabis Coalition (ECC)
In 2016, the Edmonton Stop Marijuana Grow Ops Coalition changed its name to the Edmonton Cannabis Coalition to reflect changes in legislation regarding the legalization of marijuana.
The Edmonton Cannabis Coalition (ECC) works to raise awareness and understanding of the risks that grow ops pose to communities and the challenges faced when marijuana is legalized.
The ECC consists of representatives from:
- Alberta Health Services
- Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT)
- ATCO Gas
- City of Edmonton
- Edmonton Police Service
- EPCOR Utilities Inc.
- Fortis Alberta
- Insurance Bureau of Canada
- REACH Edmonton
- Realtors Association of Edmonton
REACH Edmonton is the backbone organization of the Coalition; bringing together diverse agencies, groups and people together as partners to collaborate on how to address underlying issues that contribute to crime.
