Removing a Condition on a Cannabis Licence/Authorization

If you have a condition(s) on your cannabis Retail Operator Licence, Retail Manager Licence and/or Retail Store Authorization, and circumstances have changed, you may apply to have a condition removed. Depending on the manner in which the condition was added to your licence and/or authorization you will be required to apply to either the AGCO or the Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT).

You may apply to the AGCO’s Registrar to have a condition on your licence and/or authorization removed if:

  • The condition was imposed on a licence/authorization by the Registrar with your consent pursuant to the Cannabis Licence Act.
  • The condition was imposed on the licence/authorization by the Registrar as part of the AGCO’s risk-based licensing process. Risk-based licensing conditions can only be removed if the Registrar determines that the risk designation is no longer necessary. 

Please note that the Registrar will only consider removing a condition if the circumstances that required it have changed and it is deemed to no longer be necessary.

You may apply to the LAT to have a condition on your licence and/or authorization removed if:

  • The condition was imposed by a panel of the LAT after a hearing

In this case, you must consult the LAT website for the applicable forms and process.

Changing Legal Entity Type

If you are a Retail Operator Licence holder and would like to change your applicant type, ownership and /or corporate structure, you must submit a new Retail Operator Licence and Retail Store Authorization application along with their associated application fees.
