Where can you buy cannabis in Nunavut?
Starting October 17, 2018, the government of Nunavut will run an online store by way of a one-year, non-exclusive agreement between the Nunavut Liquor and Cannabis Commission (NULC) and Canopy Growth. Private and public retail options will be permitted at a later date.
Under this agreement, Canopy Growth delivers cannabis ordered through the province’s online portal directly to consumers. Currently, Nunavut has not publicly announced any supply deals with licensed producers.

What’s the tax rate?
Canada’s federal government has proposed a cannabis excise tax across each province/territory of 10 per cent of the product price, or $1 per gram, whichever is higher. The federal government will hand over 75% of excise tax revenue to provinces for the first two years after legalization.
In Nunavut, a 5% sales tax is applied in addition to the federal excise tax.
What happens to medical cannabis?
Nothing. Canada’s medical cannabis system remains exactly as it was prior to October 17, 2018.
