Open House – What do you think about retail cannabis sales in Port Moody
Date: November 28, 2018 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Location: Port Moody City Hall
100 Newport Drive
Port Moody, British Columbia

Tell us what you think about retail cannabis in Port Moody 

Council wants to know what you think about potential regulations for the retail sale of cannabis in Port Moody.

Currently, the retail sale of cannabis is not permitted in Port Moody because it is not a permitted land use in the City’s Zoning Bylaw.

Share your thoughts with us - attend our open house, happening at City Hall (100 Newport Drive) on November 28, 2018 from 4 to 7pm, where City staff will be available to answer questions. 

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.

In January 2019, members of Council will consider feedback from the public when making decisions about proposed regulations for the retail sale of cannabis in Port Moody.
