On October 17, 2018, the Government of Ontario approved the legalization of the production, sale and use of recreational cannabis in Canada.
The province is providing municipalities a one-time opportunity to opt-out of having private recreational cannabis retail stores within their municipal boundaries by January 22, 2019. These stores will be licenced through the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), not by the municipality. Therefore, the Township of Lake of Bays is seeking community input on whether to permit private recreational cannabis retail stores in Lake of Bays.
A staff report will be presented to Council on December 18, 2018 for information purposes.
