In Canada, federal, provincial and local governments all play pivotal roles in cannabis licensing oversight. This ensures that store owners abide by laws, licensing rules and regulations, and continue to be good neighbours in their communities.
We make it easy for you by taking the confusion out of rezoning and public consultation. We understand the complex world of provincial and municipal licensing, so you don’t have to!
Managing your public consultation process
Municipal governments seek public feedback, and establish zoning rules and by-laws that govern locations of non-medical retail cannabis stores. They also establish and enforce building codes, regulate cannabis store business licensing by-laws, and recommend in favour or against individual non-medical retail cannabis license applications.
Managing local government involvement is a critical step in the cannabis license application process to secure license approval and open a retail cannabis store. The steps vary from city to city and not all cities will even accept an application.The provincial governments of both BC and Alberta have placed significant importance on municipal approval. Without city approval, an application at the provincial level cannot go forward. Rely on Thrive to help guide you through the process.
