Cannabis-related businesses

Retail sales of recreational cannabis or mairjuana are currently illegal. We will continue to enforce existing laws related to cannabis sales until the new legislation comes into effect by July 2018. Currently, business licenses are not being issued for the sale of cannabis.

New cannabis retail businesses

The legalization of cannabis is creating interest about potential retail opportunities in Calgary. The City is waiting for more clarity from the provincial government before we can move forward on the cannabis retail sales model. We are also interested in learning more from Calgarians, which will help us determine how retail sales will be implemented in Calgary.
