AGCO updates application process for cannabis retail licensing

On December 12, 2019, the Government of Ontario announced its move towards an open market for private cannabis retail in Ontario and related amendments to Ontario Regulation 468/18 made under the Cannabis Licence Act, 2018. As a result, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) will modify the application process for cannabis retail licensing.

These changes will be introduced in the stages, which align with the timelines established by the government.The AGCO is committed to processing applications as quickly as possible with the objective of making a legal supply of cannabis more broadly available across Ontario.

As regulator, the AGCO’s priorities continue to be ensuring that only eligible applicants are licensed and that licensed operators act with honesty, integrity, and in the public interest, following all laws, regulations and standards.
