Here’s Where Ontario’s First Private Cannabis Stores Could Open
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has begun announcing potential locations for the province’s brick and mortar cannabis stores. So far, applications have been made for locations in Toronto, Brampton, Ajax, Hamilton, Oshawa, St. Catherines, Burlington, London, Sudbury, and Ottawa.
The applicants are among the 25 winners of a lottery implemented in part of the province’s plan to phase-in privately-owned cannabis retail amidst supply shortages. Held in mid-January, the lottery attracted interest from nearly 17,000 would-be cannabis store operators across the province.
Each announcement signals the onset of a 15-day Public Notice Process period in which time the proposed stores are required to publically post a notification of its application in the storefront. The two-week window provides an opportunity for residents of the respective municipalities to submit objections for consideration by the Registrar charged with issuing or refusing the applicant’s Cannabis Retail Store Authorization. Stores are expected to open throughout Apr. 2019.
