Cannabis and the LGA

On November 7th, the Province of Manitoba announced that the mandate of the LGA will be expanded to regulate the purchase, storage, distribution and retail of cannabis. At that time, the government acknowledged that the regulatory framework and the licensing regime is in development. The LGA will be able to provide information once the details of licensing, compliance and social responsibility are confirmed. Please watch here for more details.

The Province of Manitoba has launched a Request for Proposals (RFP) for retail cannabis stores, which is available through MERX. The LGA is not involved in the RFP process and cannot answer questions about this process.
