Objections to an Application

Cannabis Bulletin 

April 1, 2020

This bulletin is to advise all applicants for a cannabis licence and other interested stakeholders of an important amendment to the Objections to an Application policy.

Effective April 6, 2020, Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) is reducing the amount of time an objection to a cannabis licence application may be filed from 21 days to seven days.

The amended policies are located in Section 2.4 of the Retail Cannabis Store Handbook.
