Manitoba opening cannabis market to new retailers on June 1

Manitoba could see new players in the local cannabis market, after Crown Services minister Jeff Wharton announced Friday that the province’s pot retail application process will be open to all prospective retailers.

“We are pleased to open the market further by allowing more retailers to apply for retail licences,” said Wharton.

“This move will enable local entrepreneurs to create jobs and support Manitoba’s economy, which is a critical step as we work toward rebuilding Manitoba in the wake of COVID-19.”   

The new application process, which begins June 1, is set to introduce a new controlled-access licence, while also offering age-restricted licences for retailers who want to open standalone stores.
