Grow Opportunities: Local communities prosper when people have access to opportunity. Honouring Canopy Growth’s heritage and economic impact on Smiths Falls, Tweed Collective invests in projects and programs that support the development of skills that help Canadians find their path to prosperity. In Newfoundland and New Brunswick, Tweed Collective has partnered with the John Howard Society to support their ‘A Step Up’ program which provides courses and training certifications to help participants, many of whom have been impacted by the criminal justice system, secure employment and reintegrate into their communities. The John Howard Society plays an important role in Canada through public education, community service and pressing for reform in the criminal justice system.
