The City of Hamilton is asking the public to weigh in on private retail cannabis locations. Residents are invited to complete an online survey between now and January 9th at 5 pm.
The city says survey feedback will help inform next steps as Hamilton councillors consider whether to opt in or opt out of allowing licensed private retail cannabis stores in Hamilton.
A regulated private retail model for cannabis is scheduled to launch in ontario on April 1st.
Municipalities have been given a one-time opportunity to opt out of having provincially licensed retail cannabis stores in their communities.
The deadline for city council to make this decision is January 22nd.
