The Government of Canada plans to legalize cannabis on October 17, 2018.  The legalization of cannabis will have an impact on all municipalities, including the Town of Bon Accord.


On July 17, 2018 the Town held an Open House to provide residents  with  an annexation update, as well as information about forthcoming federal, provincial and municipal rules and regulation surrounding the production, sales and consumption of cannabis.


Following are links to the information that provided at the Open House:

Welcome and Cannabis legalization Timeline,

Cannabis production,

Cannabis retail sales and setback options for the Town, and

Cannabis consumption.


The Town will be working with Municipal Planning Services (MPS) in preparing amendments to the Town's Municipal Development Plan (MDP), Land Use Bylaw (LUB) and Business Licensing Bylaw.


Residents will be kept informed of any Public Hearings and information sessions through the Town newsletters, the local newspaper (Free Press) and our website.
