British Columbia Cannabis Retail License

In British Columbia, the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch (LCRB) is responsible for the licensing of private non-medical cannabis retail stores. In addition to privately run cannabis stores, there will also be government-run retail operations including physical storefronts and an online store. The LCRB is currently accepting applications for a retail store license via their cannabis licensing application portal. An applicant for a retail store license or group of related persons must not hold more than eight retail store licenses.

The province has also proposed three other unique licenses:

  1. Marketing License – this license will allow marketers to promote the products of licensed federal cannabis producers to licensed cannabis retail stores
  2. Growing Cannabis License – the Province may consider establishing a class of retail licenses for micro-cultivators who are federally licensed
  3. Rural Retail Store License – the Province will consider issuing this license to service rural or remote areas that are not sufficiently served by existing retail cannabis stores
