Band Councils may approve whether to allow cannabis retail store locations on First Nations reserves.

This page will be updated as we receive notifications of Band Council resolutions to allow or not allow cannabis retail stores on the reserve where the resolution is passed. The decision can be changed at any time by the Band Council, but the AGCO must be notified as soon as possible after the passing of a resolution.

Any First Nations reserve that does not appear in the table has not yet informed the AGCO of its status.
