Cannabis Permit Sanctions

General Information

The majority of Saskatchewan’s cannabis permittees and registrants abide by SLGA’s legislative, regulatory and policy guidelines related to the distribution and sale of recreational cannabis. Permittees and registrants that violate the requirements may be subject to SLGA sanctions.

In determining the appropriate sanction, SLGA uses a progressive system of disciplinary action and considers several factors. Those factors include the compliance history of the permittee or registrant, the nature of the violation and the particular facts surrounding the violation.

All permittees and registrants have the right to request a review of SLGA’s sanctioning decisions by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Licensing Commission, an independent body, within 15 days of receiving notice of the sanction.

Recent sanctions against cannabis permittees and registrants can be viewed on the Cannabis Permittee Sanctions page. The information provided only includes sanctions issued by SLGA. Local police services may proceed with a separate sanction process through the court system. (Sanctions are posted according to SLGA's Cannabis Administrative Penalty Publishing Policy). Information will be updated on an ongoing basis.
