Alberta prepared for cannabis legalization

Minister Ceci, Minister of Treasury Board and Finance is joined by Alain Maisonneuve, president and CEO, Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis (AGLC) to discuss cannabis legalization readiness.

Albertans can be confident the province is ready for legal cannabis following more than 18 months of preparation. After one of the largest public consultations in Alberta’s history, the government has built a legal cannabis system that keeps the drug out of the hands of children and keeps profits away from criminals. The system will also protect Albertans on our roads and in workplaces and public spaces.

Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) is the agency responsible for overseeing this new industry. Together with the Government of Alberta, AGLC is committed to a responsible, secure rollout of legal cannabis in the province.
