The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has announced the results of its latest cannabis retail store lottery which attracted 4,864 applications.

Held on August 20, 2019, winners of the lottery will be alotted one of the 42 new store authorizations after meeting pre-qualification requirements. The lottery was overseen by a third-party fairness monitor and winners were notified following the draw.

Selected applicants now have until August 28, 2019 to apply for a cannabis Retail Operator Licence and a Retail Store Authorization at which point “the AGCO will undertake its full eligibility and licensing review,” according to this morning’s announcement.

If successful, the new stores will open in the following jurisdictions across Ontario and will join the first 25 cannabis stores which were authorized to open in Ontario in April of 2019.
