Survey – Windsor Storefront Cannabis Sales

Ontario Cannabis Retail Model Announced, Windsor Storefront Cannabis Sales

Have Your Say on Windsor Storefront Cannabis Sales

The City of Windsor wants to know whether you support storefront cannabis sales locally.

On October 17, 2018 Cannabis was legalized in Canada by the federal government, thereby allowing consumers 19 years of age or older to purchase recreational cannabis through an online retail platform.  In Ontario, the Ontario Cannabis store operates the online platform.

On April 1, 2019, Ontario will allow private sector retailers to sell recreational cannabis from storefronts in communities across the province. Municipalities have two options: to opt out of allowing retail storefront sales entirely or to allow retail storefront sales.

The City of Windsor would like you to take 5 minutes to read more details and provide your feedback in their online survey:

Storefront Cannabis Sales Survey

This survey will be open until January 4, 2019 and the information will be shared with Windsor City Council to aid in their decision ahead of the province’s January 22, 2019 “opt out” deadline.
