The discussions for Canada to decriminalize Cannabis started in earnest in 2015 when one Justin Trudeau was elected into office as Prime Minister (PM).

The discussions to Canada to decriminalize Cannabis reached the floor of the Senate on 13 April, 2017. Afterwards, the bill was also approved by the house of commons. This was the last hurdle in the smooth sail of the legislation.
