AGLC is responsible for regulating private retail cannabis licensing, the distribution of cannabis and operation of the online cannabis store on behalf of the Alberta  government.

 

AGLC is committed to:

  • keeping cannabis out of the hands of children and youth

  • protecting public health

  • promoting safety on roads, in workplaces and in public spaces

  • limiting the illegal cannabis market

  • continuing to offer choices Albertans can trust

 

In alignment with the Cannabis Framework’s policy priorities, AGLC will:

  • Provide clear oversight over the distribution of packages and sealed cannabis products, ensuring only legally produced products come into Alberta.

  • Ensure cannabis is distributed to specialized retail outlets, which won’t be allowed to sell alcohol, tobacco or pharmaceuticals.

  • Work with producers and retailers to provide Albertans with access to federally regulated cannabis products.

  • Publish regulations regarding the sale of cannabis, including licensing criteria and other rules for private retailers.
