Reminder: Community consultation for cannabis store in Iqaluit

The Office of the Superintendent of Licensing has received an application to open an Enclosed Cannabis Store in Iqaluit from Nuna Cannabis Store Inc. The proposed location of the cannabis store is 1501 Federal Road and the proposed hours for the store are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, except for holidays.

An Enclosed Cannabis Store is a place where cannabis is sold and is not accessible by the general public. Only adults over the age of 19 are allowed inside and there are walls and a door to guard against access from minors. Enclosed cannabis stores can use sensory display items (or smell jars) and discuss product information with customers.

Under the Cannabis Act (Nunavut), the GN must consult the community when an application is received. Iqalummiut can send their comments, concerns and views about a cannabis store opening in Iqaluit to cannabis@gov.nu.ca or call 867-975-5875. The deadline to submit feedback is August 21, 2020.
