If you have any thoughts on cannabis retail, the City of Yellowknife is asking you to voice your opinion. This is your chance to provide feedback to decision-makers and make an impact on major initiatives which could have an effect in your community.

The recreational use of cannabis became legalized on October 17th when the federal government put the Cannabis Act into effect. The City’s role in legalization is to decide where cannabis stores can or should be located and whether additional operating restrictions are necessary.

In the NWT, the Cannabis Products Act and Regulations regulate the distribution and sales of cannabis and outline the process to become a potential cannabis vendor.

Residents have until June 2nd to take this survey and provide their input into the matter. The City assures that the feedback will be coming exclusively from residents, and not from those living outside the area.
