Recreational Cannabis Information


As of October 17, 2018 Ontario citizens 19 years and older are able to purchase cannabis online only through the Ontario Cannabis Store.  Store-front retail sales began on April 1, 2019. Meanwhile, there is no change to the legislation pertaining to medical use of cannabis.
On January 21, 2019, City Council decided to allow privately-owned retail stores in Brampton. Read the full media release here.


The Latest

The AGCO has approved Brampton’s first private cannabis store. Ganjika House, located at 186 Main Street South, Brampton, is now open as of April 1, 2019.   For any queries related to this cannabis store, please contact the AGCO directly.


What’s been done?

In preparation for the legalization of recreational cannabis, the City has established a cross-functional team to identify impacts to City operations and services (i.e. Enforcement & By-law, licensing, zoning for commercial operations, building inspections, Fire & Emergency Services, and other community services such as the Service Brampton call centre).

The City also continues to collaborate with the Region of Peel, other municipalities, Peel Regional Police, Ontario Provincial Police and provincial ministries to identify impacts and mitigation measures.
