Cannabis Retail Operations and Management

By

The Cannabis Act establishes that provincial, territorial and municipal governments will determine the framework for the retail distribution of cannabis. As a result of each province creating their own retail model, a patchwork system has formed across Canada with different rules and regulations depending on what province and municipality you plan to operate in.

Opportunities to establish private cannabis retail businesses will be available in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, Nunavut, Newfoundland and Labrador. Applications for a cannabis retail licence will be primarily handled by the liquor and gaming control boards of each province. It is important for potential retailers to properly prepare themselves in order to ensure that they will successfully obtain the required licence(s) and authorization.

This workshop will help guide you through the application process including the form and manner for submitting an application for a Cannabis Operator Licence and Store Authorization in Ontario and the information that is required to be submitted. A thorough overview of the Cannabis Retail Act will be provided focusing on the Registrar’s standards that have been established. This includes store and security requirements, advertising and promotional restrictions, required staff training, background checks, record keeping and documentation practices, and maintaining compliance with the federal cannabis tracking system.

Cannabis Micro Licence Application Process and Requirements

By

The Cannabis Act establishes that an application for one of the Micro Cultivation/Processing Licence must be filed with Health Canada in the form and manner specified by the Minister and must include the information required by the Minister.

Although security requirements are less demanding in comparison to obtaining a Standard Cultivation/Processing Licence, the application process to acquire a Micro Licence under the Cannabis Act can still be complicated and requires undergoing a strict and thorough review by Health Canada. Applicants must ensure that the information provided in the application is detailed and accurate and clearly demonstrates that they are compliant with all the requirements of the Act. Insufficient or inaccurate information may give rise to grounds for refusal. Extensive details regarding the facility and its operations are required, including: floor plan, site and building information, physical security requirements, Good Product Practices (GPP), Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) Security Clearances, notice to local authorities, administrative forms and quality assurance reports.

This webinar discusses the application process including the form and manner for submitting an application for a Micro Licence and the information that is required to be submitted.

Cannabis Investing in 2020: How to Find Opportunities Amongst Chaos

By

These are exciting times in the cannabis industry. We appreciate you tuning into us and participating in our events. Years ago we began by educating attorneys with continuing education programs regarding the emerging practice area of cannabis law. Back then educating attorneys is all we did. When we began with cannabis law programs we noticed for the first time that business professionals of all types were showing up and eager to connect with their peers and learn more. So we decided to move forward with a conference and that sold out like most of our cannabis law programs did. Based on the success of our conference, a clear demand in the market to connect the best and brightest in the industry, to provide high level education and to move the industry forward we created a professional services organization for the cannabis industry called The Cannabis LAB. The LAB stands for law, accounting and business. As you have noticed with the emergence of organizations within the cannabis industry several niches are being filled. We are focusing on our true audience, the professional services sector including: business owners, investors, entrepreneurs, financial services, accounting, law, insurance, marketing and the like. We like to say we are infusing professionalism into the cannabis industry. It is clear that as the industry transitions it is the people that already operate in the corporate or business space that will become its leaders. If you are committed to the cannabis industry, if you want to know who you need to know to be a resource to your clients and your own business, if you want to continue to learn then we created Cannabis LAB for you. Welcome. We invite you to grow healthy, grow wealthy and grow smarter.
