Cannabis Legalization

Cannabis Legalization

The Federal Government introduced Bill C-45, known as the Cannabis Act, to legalize recreational cannabis in Canada; Cannabis became legal on October 17, 2018

Over the past two years, we have connected with residents to talk about Cannabis Legalization through drop-in sessions and an online survey, gathering feedback about consumption, production and distribution, and retail sales. Sturgeon County is working to manage the legalization of cannabis in the best interests of our community and based on the feedback that was received, and we would like to share the proposed approach to manage the legalization of Cannabis.

Sturgeon County has currently proposed Bylaw 1436/19 to amend the Land Use Bylaw which proposes to allow standard-sized production and distribution facilities in medium to heavy industrial areas, and to allow micro-sized production and distribution facilities within agricultural parcels. It also proposes for retail facilities to be allowed in commercial areas and puts forward specific regulations that will regulate the impacts of these facilities on surrounding land uses. A Public hearing will be held Tuesday, June 25 at 2 p.m. in council chambers.  

A draft of Bylaw 1436/19 can be found here
