GN accepting cannabis retail licence applications

Starting June 1, 2020, the Government of Nunavut will be accepting cannabis retail licence applications to operate physical cannabis stores and online stores in Nunavut.

Allowing licensed private businesses to import and sell cannabis will give Nunavummiut more access to safer legal recreational cannabis. The licensing regime includes strict rules to combat the illegal market and protect Nunavut’s youth. Nunavut’s cannabis legislation and regulations have a broad range of requirements that licensed cannabis retailers must follow.

To learn more about the cannabis retail licensing process in Nunavut and to apply for a cannabis retail licence, please visit the Department of Finance website (https://gov.nu.ca/finance/information/cannabis-retail) or email cannabis@gov.nu.ca.
