On July 3, 2019, the Government of Ontario announced its plans for a second allocation of cannabis retail store authorizations. The plan allocated eight (8) store authorizations for stores to be operated on First Nations reserves.  On October 22, 2019, the Government amended Ontario Regulation 468/18 to allow for the authorization of up to 26 stores on First Nations reserves.

As of July 31, 2019 at 9:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) (8:00 am Central Time), the AGCO began accepting applications from applicants who wished to operate a store on a First Nations reserve. The opportunities to apply for a store authorization were allocated on a first come, first served basis as determined by the time of submission of a complete, online Retail Store Authorization (RSA) Intent to Apply application. Complete applications were required to include a resolution from the First Nations Band Council approving the location of the proposed store on their reserve.

The table below lists the names of the applicants who have been notified to apply for a store authorization, as well as the First Nations reserves on which their stores are proposed to be located.
