Licence and Authorization Fees

There are fees required when you apply for your Retail Operator Licence, Retail Manager Licence, or Retail Store Authorization and fees when you renew these licences or authorization.

Fee payments must be received by the AGCO before a licence or authorization application can be processed. If an application is withdrawn, or if the AGCO refuses to issue the licence or authorization for any reason, the fee is non-refundable. 

The fees are:

*If you are a sole proprietor, you will not need to get a Cannabis Retail Manager Licence for that store.
