Background

The Government of Canada recently legalized the recreational use of cannabis, and certain federal changes allow provincial and local governments to regulate the sale of recreational cannabis. Municipalities oversee land use and zoning, as well as retail use locations and requirements, which means Port Moody Council can decide whether it will permit retail cannabis stores and, if permitted, whether it will adopt applicable guidelines and regulations.
