Ontario retail cannabis lottery begins Monday


The process of obtaining a license for retail sale of cannabis begins on Monday in Ontario.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of the ship offers 25 retail sales, of which only five are to the east of Ontario.

This will select two for & # 39; for the Northern region & # 39; when choosing

This includes: Nipissing, Parry Sound, Sudbury, Greater Sudbury, Timiskaming, Cochrane, Algoma, Thunder Bay, Rainy River and Kenora.

The lottery will be made on January 11, but the selected ones will not automatically obtain a retail cannabis license.

"We start with this process of linkage to select people, and those interested can really make a financial commitment and commitment," explains Raymond Kahnert, senior communications consultant, AGCO.

The AGCO will be created from the 7 and 9 presentations of the interests that have been submitted and the designers may request a license.

There is a $ 75 fee to be applied, and the selected ones will have a valid five-day period to complete the order, $ 6,000 non-refund fee and 50,000 credit card.

"For any reason, if you do not choose to continue with the application, then … 26. people, or the next East person, could apply," Kahnert said 1310 NEWS.

While distributing five East Asian licenses, we'll see the number of shops in Ottawa.

The number of stores will depend on partly received shipments.

This means that Ottawa could see all, or even cannabis stores.

Here are 25 licenses distributed throughout the province:

  • Eastern Ontario, including Ottawa, will have five stores.
  • Toronto will have six stores.
  • GTA will have five stores.
  • Other places in southern Ontario, including Toronto and GTA, will have seven stores.
  • Northern Ontario will have two stores.

They will be able to open cannabis stores in Ontzirola on Ontario on April 1.

If Ottawa does not have a store, you do not need to travel a bit more than Gatineau. Unfortunately, there are also 12 retail cannabis stores in Quebec.

According to The Société Québécoise du Cannabis website, "Due to shortage of current supplies, our store will open on Thursdays only on Sundays".

We do not know when or when Gatineau gets his first store cannabis store.
