Ontario’s Provincial Legislature Passes Cannabis Statute Law Amendment Act, 2018

Ontario’s provincial legislature passed the Cannabis Statute Law Amendment Act on October 17, 2018. This Act sets out the legal structure for private cannabis retail in Ontario and gives the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) the authority to license, regulate and enforce the sale of recreational cannabis through privately run stores in Ontario. 

We anticipate beginning to accept applications in December. More information will be available in the coming weeks.
