Retail Cannabis


The use of recreational cannabis became legal in Canada on October 17, 2018. Ontario has elected to allow for recreational cannabis to be sold on-line or in privately operated retail stores. The location and operation of these private stores will be under the control of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), which is also responsible for regulating gaming and alcohol sales in the province. The Town of Erin is considering whether Erin should opt-in or opt-out of private retail sales of cannabis.

Town Council wants to directly hear from residents on this matter. This survey is open for the entire month of July. The Town will review the public’s input along with other relevant data, inputs and trends before deciding on whether to opt-in or opt-out of allowing the legal retail sales of cannabis in Erin.

Update, August 1, 2021: Thank you for participating. This survey is now closed.
