Cannabis Retail Store Survey

*Consultation is now closed*

Recreational cannabis was legalized by the Federal Government on October 17, 2018.

In Ontario, we have new laws that tell us how, where and who can buy and have cannabis:

  • You must be 19 years of age and older to buy, use, possess and grow recreational cannabis;
  • Cannabis can only be purchased through the online Ontario Cannabis Store;
  • The use of cannabis is permitted where ever tobacco use is permitted;
  • You are able to have a maximum of 30 grams of dried cannabis on you, in public;
  • You are able to grow up to four plants in your home;

Regulations for private retails sales are currently being drafted by Ontario’s Ministry of the Attorney General; these regulations are anticipated to be in place for April 1, 2019.

Municipalities are being offered the opportunity to opt out of having a retail store in their community and must so by January 22, 2019. Municipalities may opt in at a later date. If a municipality decides to opt in, they cannot chose to opt out at a later date.

Feedback collected from November 17 to November 30, 2018 will be shared at the December 11, 2018 City Council meeting.
