On July 3, 2019, the Government of Ontario announced its plans for a second allocation of cannabis retail store authorizations.

Ontario Regulation 468/18 under the Cannabis Licence Act, 2018 has been amended to reflect this new allocation. The Regulation establishes that the AGCO must use a method for selecting applicants that does not rely on the discretion of the Registrar or of any other person.

As a result, the AGCO is holding a second Expression of Interest Lottery to allow pre-qualified prospective cannabis operators to apply for a Retail Operator Licence for one of 42 retail store authorizations in Ontario.
