Live Webinar – Cannabis Retail Application Process and Requirements


Course Overview:

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 determining 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.

Although the application process in each province will be slightly different in terms of store, security, reporting and application requirements, best practices and what to expect when submitting an application can still be deduced. Even without full clarity on what regulations will look like in Ontario, many potential retailers are already trying to prepare themselves to ensure that they will successfully obtain the required licence(s) and authorization.

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

Health Canada, WebEx Invitation – Proposed Regulations for New Classes of Cannabis


Health Canada is developing regulations governing the production and sale of additional cannabis products, namely edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals. Providing legal access to a broad range of cannabis products is a key element of the Government’s strategy to displace the illegal market over time. These cannabis products will be permitted for legal sale under the Cannabis Act no later than October 17, 2019. The proposed regulations for edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals announced yesterday will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on December 22, 2018.

In order for us to hear from interested organizations about the proposed regulations for edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals, Health Canada is inviting you to attend a WebEx session on Tuesday, January 28, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm (EST). The purpose of the WebEx session is to provide stakeholders who will be directly affected by the regulations with a technical briefing on the proposals. This will allow participants to be better informed to send a written submission.
