Cannabis Bylaw Amendments

The two proposed Cannabis bylaw amendments (1039/LUO/2018 and 1040/LUO/2018) have now completed third reading, which means they are now enacted as bylaws for the Town of Fairview. This allows prospective business owners to plan for cannabis legalization. The new bylaws closely match the majority of the survey results that were received.

Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act of the Federal government received royal assent on June 21, 2018. Prime Minister Trudeau announced that the effective date of the Bill would be October 17, 2018. This allows the province and municipalities time to prepare for the legalization.
