Licence and Authorization Fees

In order to apply for a cannabis retail-related licence or authorization from the AGCO, you will have to pay the required 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.

The fees are:
