The AGCO is committed to processing applications for retail store authorizations (RSA) as quickly as possible with the objective of making the legal supply of cannabis more broadly available across Ontario. In accordance with direction set by government, the AGCO is issuing 30 RSAs per week as stores become ready. Please note that the AGCO has received a high volume of applications to date and continues to receive hundreds of new applications monthly. RSA applications are processed in order of receipt. For information about the application process and other regulatory and legal aspects of operating a cannabis retail store, consult the Cannabis Retail Regulation Guide

This table and accompanying map show the status of Cannabis Retail Store applications in Ontario.

“In Progress” indicates that the AGCO has received an RSA application and the process is underway. The table and map are updated when the AGCO begins its review of an application (not when the application is submitted). 

“Public Notice” indicates that written submissions are being accepted for that location until the date listed. Written submissions can only be made during the 15-day public notice period, and only by a resident of the municipality in which the proposed store is located, or the municipality itself.

To make a written submission: Use iAGCO to search for all applications currently undergoing public notice, and click the “file objection/submission” button next to the application you wish to comment on. You can also subscribe to receive an email whenever a new application for a cannabis retail store enters the public notice phase.

“Authorized to Open” indicates that the store has met the regulatory requirements and has passed its pre-opening inspection from the AGCO. The store operator will determine the actual date of the store’s opening.

Stay informed about new cannabis applications undergoing public notice by signing-up to receive daily emails.
