Cannabis business at The City of Calgary

There are three types of cannabis businesses that are permitted in Calgary. All of them have specific rules, regulations and requirements from several levels of government to operate. Individuals interested in starting one of these businesses should ensure that they read through this information prior to starting the process of applying for a cannabis business.

For more information about the legalization of cannabis in Calgary, including consumption and smoking rules, refer to the cannabis legalization project page.
