Bill C-45 Passed
Last week on June 21, 2018 the Cannabis Act, or Bill C-45 officially received royal assent. Canada is now the second country in the world, the first of the G-7 nations to legalize the use of adult recreational cannabis.
As announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as of October 17th, 2018, cannabis will be legal for recreational use in Canada. So, what is happening in the meantime? The provinces, territories and municipalities are finalizing their regulations and retail sales channels (federal regulations came out yesterday, June 27, 2018). It is important to note that the regulation of edibles and beverages were not included in the initial round but is expected within the year.
The structure of cannabis regulation in Canada will have Health Canada continuing to regulate personal production and licenced cannabis producers for medicinal cannabis, whereas for recreational use, Health Canada will continue regulating the licensed producers with the provinces and territories having control over personal production, distribution and sales of the product.
According to Deloitte, Canada’s cannabis market could be almost $7.2 billion by 2019. dicentra is committed to helping companies be a part of this newly legalized industry whether it be as a producer of cannabis, as a supplier of products to producers like fertilizers, or bringing new product types with cannabis to the Canadian market.
