provinicial Cannabis Laws in canada
Like Alberta, Manitoba has adapted an all-private retail model with regulation through the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority (LGCA) and wholesale distribution through Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation (MLLC). There are 6 licensed non-medical cannabis retailers in Manitoba (Delta 9 Cannabis Store, Tweed, Meta Cannabis Supply Co., Tokyo Smoke, Garden Variety, Fire & Flower Cannabis Co.) with various locations around the province.
Additional opportunities to participate in the industry will present themselves once the non-medical cannabis market takes hold, expands, and matures. Future activity also depends on regulations the Federal government makes under The Cannabis Act.
Therefore, no specific timeline is in place and opportunities could emerge quickly. Future expansion could include edible products and specialty stores. Additional information on Manitoba’s cannabis retail framework can be found here.
