Sask Government to Phase-in new retail license system starting in Spring 2020

Saskatchewan will move forward with a phased-in open market system when allocating cannabis retail permits, beginning in the spring of 2020. The supply of cannabis for permitted retailers will continue to come from permitted wholesalers and federally licensed producers registered in Saskatchewan. 

Beginning in April 2020, SLGA will accept applications for cannabis retail permits in Saskatchewan communities with populations less than 2,500. As well, proponents will be able to apply for permits in communities that were previously identified as eligible for permits but did not proceed. In September 2020, SLGA will begin accepting permit applications for stores in all communities in the province. Communities may opt out of having cannabis retail stores in their community. Interested businesses and individuals will continue to be required to meet SLGA’s permitting requirements including a good character check, inventory tracking and store security. Applicants will also need to meet local municipal requirements, including zoning.
