New Recreational Cannabis Regulations

Nov 19, 2018

On 14 November 2018, the Province filed Ontario Regulation 468/18, made under the Cannabis Licence Act, 2018, regarding the licensing and operation of private cannabis stores in Ontario.   Among other things, the regulations establish a minimum distance of 150 metres (approximately 500 feet) between cannabis retail stores and schools.  O. Reg. 468/18 is available on e-laws.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has officially become the regulator of private recreational cannabis retailing in Ontario, and plans to begin accepting on-line applications for cannabis-related licences on 17 December 2018.  The AGCO has announced that it will be publishing a comprehensive Cannabis Retail Regulation Guide on-line.
