Cannabis Retail Sales Survey

Cannabis Retail Sales Survey

Recreational cannabis was legalized on October 17, 2018 by the Federal Government and it is now legal to purchase and use cannabis for recreational purposes across Canada. 

In Ontario, currently the only way to legally purchase recreational cannabis is online through the Ontario Cannabis Store, but beginning in April 2019 it will be available for purchase through private recreational cannabis retail stores. 

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) will be the provincial regulator authorized to licence private recreational cannabis retail stores. The Ontario Cannabis Store will be the exclusive wholesaler to these retailers.

The province is providing municipalities a one-time opportunity to opt-out of having private recreational cannabis retail stores, within their municipal boundaries, by January 22, 2019. 

Council has directed that staff gather public opinion with respect to the possibility of private recreational cannabis retail stores locating within the Township of The Archipelago. Please complete the following short survey.
Please be advised the final day to access the survey will be Friday, January 4th, 2019.
