COVID-19 information for Albertans
Please visit AGLC.ca/COVID19 for the latest updates – including information on in-person access to AGLC services.
The following information will be posted on AGLC website:
name of the applicant;
name of the proposed premises;
municipal address of the proposed premises;
licence applied for; and
the date that a written objection must be received by AGLC.
All objections must be submitted in writing and received by AGLC within 7 calendar days from the date the application is posted on AGLC website in order for the objection to be considered during the current licensing process. (Amended Apr 2020)
AGLC may not consider objections of the following nature as they are considered the responsibility of the municipality:
number of licensees in a community;
space between licensed premises;
matters involving retail competition, community image and property values; and
objections of a social/moral concern regarding the sale and distribution of cannabis, generally.
The applicant will be notified in writing of all objections received, other than those described in Section 2.4.4.
The applicant will be given 14 days from the date of notification to respond in writing to the objection; an extension may be requested by the applicant. No licence(s) will be issued until the objection and the applicant’s response, if any, have been considered by the Board.
The objector(s) will be contacted to obtain detailed information regarding the objection. The municipality, local law enforcement and any other applicable agencies may also be contacted to make inquiries as to the potential impact, specific to the objection, of the licence being issued in that community.
The applicant and the person(s) filing the objection will be advised in writing of the Board’s decision.
If no objections to the issue of a licence are received within the 7 calendar days AGLC will continue with the licensing process. (Amended Apr 2020)
