Cannabis Retail Store Permitting

SLGA is now accepting cannabis retail store permit applications for communities of fewer than 2,500 people, as well as for Biggar, Kindersley, Shellbrook, Canora and the RM of Corman Park. Please note that the municipality or First Nation must approve the establishment of a retail store in the community before SLGA will consider issuing a permit.

Permitted cannabis retail stores must operate a bricks-and-mortar store, and can also sell cannabis online for pick-up and delivery in Saskatchewan. Retailers may also sell cannabis at wholesale to other permitted retailers located in the province.

In communities under 2,500, a cannabis retail store may be standalone or integrated with another business. You can find more information about requirements for standalone and integrated cannabis retail stores, along with general permitting and operating information, in the Cannabis Regulatory Policy Manual.

At this time, SLGA is not accepting applications for communities larger than 2,500 people that have cannabis retail store permits or applications in process. Any applications for those communities submitted prior to September 2020 will be returned immediately.
