At Good Nature Cannabis, our commitment to the living wage movement isn't just a policy, it's a cornerstone of our brand values. As the first and only Living Wage Certified cannabis dispensary in Ottawa, we're passionate about ensuring that every member of our team earns a wage that allows them to not only survive but thrive.
Picture this: a bustling dispensary filled with the aroma of freshly grown buds and the hum of enthusiastic customers. It's a scene that's become familiar to us at Good Nature, but amidst the hustle and bustle, there's a story unfolding — one that's rooted in our commitment to fairness and equity.
For us, paying a living wage isn't just about meeting a minimum requirement. It's about recognizing the inherent dignity and worth of every individual. It's about acknowledging that our employees aren’t cogs in a machine — they're valued members of our community, deserving of respect and fair compensation for their hard work.
What is living wage?
But what exactly is a living wage, you might ask? Well, it's more than just a number — it's the hourly wage that a worker needs to cover their basic expenses and actively participate in their community. It goes beyond the bare minimum and reflects the true cost of living in our community. Recently, the living wage increased in Ottawa and we make sure to stay up-to-date with current living wages to ensure our team's well-being.
Think about it this way: if our employees are struggling to make ends meet, it's not just their problem — it's our problem, too. That's why we made the decision to become Living Wage Certified. This commitment reflects our values as a company and our dedication to ensuring the well-being of our team.
Furthermore, we're proud to be independently owned and operated at Good Nature Cannabis. Buying cannabis should be more than just a transaction — it’s an experience. We offer legal access to the plant, a strong sense of community, and rich culture — all while steering clear of corporate agendas.
