Reminder: Cannabis Regulations Survey Closes Midnight Tonight

For immediate release: February 7, 2018 - 8:33am
CY18-109

The City reminds residents that the cannabis regulations online survey will close today, February 7, 2018, at midnight.

With the Government of Canada expected to legalize the recreational sale and use of cannabis in summer 2018, the City is working to create safe and appropriate regulations for cannabis-related businesses in our community.

As such, the City is undergoing a two-phased public engagement approach to hear a wide range of views and gather balanced input on the regulatory areas within the City’s jurisdiction.  These areas include business licensing, zoning, and community standards. 

The Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan will oversee all other elements of the legislation and regulation for legalized cannabis use under Canada's Cannabis Act (canada.ca/cannabis).

In addition, a representative survey will be conducted to provide statistically valid data on residents’ perspectives on the topic.

The results of both surveys will be used to shape the direction of cannabis regulations in Saskatoon and assist the City in gaining a better understanding of this issue as it relates to our community.
