Cannabis Regulatory Framework

What we have done?

  • The City has recently developed and adopted regulations for legalization so Cannabis retailers will be authorized to operate.
  • Regulations cover where cannabis-related businesses can locate as well as additional requirements for municipal approval such as buffers from facilities catering to youth, application processing fees and distances from other cannabis-related businesses, and the City’s Zoning Bylaw.

What is the City able to regulate?

Municipalities can set regulatory requirements to address issues of local concern. 

For example:

  • Restricting where cannabis can be cultivated;
  • Limit the hours that cannabis retail stores can operate or impose other conditions such as signage specifications;
  • Establishing local zoning rules for cannabis-based businesses;
  • Restricting where cannabis may be consumed (i.e. through Clean Air Bylaws); and
  • Charging applicant fees to for applications.
