Provincial

New Brunswick Calls for Tenders for Future Cannabis Retail Space

By Whitney Abrams | October 18, 2017

Back in September, New Brunswick announced that it established a Crown corporation to oversee the sales of recreational cannabis in the province.  The details of its retail model were not released.  However, we do know that licensed producers Organigram and Canopy Growth will supply the Province with dried cannabis and cannabis derivatives.

The legislature committee has recommended sales through government-operated storefronts. Most recently, New Brunswick’s Liquor Corporation, known as “Alcool NB Liquor” released a call for tenders for cannabis retail spaces in various locations in New Brunswick, including Greater Moncton, Fredericton, Oromocto, Greater Saint John, Bathurst, Edmundston, Sackville, Shediac, Miramichi, Sussex, St. Stephen, Richibucto, Tracadie, Perth-Andover and Campbellton areas.  The facilities should be approximately 3,000 square feet and available for lease.  The facilities must have parking and delivery truck access space and must be substantially completed by May 31, 2018, presumably in order to be set for the July roll-out of the legal market.  Applications are due November 10th, 2017.

We expect to see more announcements from New Brunswick as locations and plans for retail become concrete. Be sure to continue to check Canada Cannabis Legal for all Provincial cannabis updates.

    Fascinating article. Very in depth. My one question is: from where would Canada import cannabis? Are there countries currently exporting cannabis legally? Uraguay seems like the most economical source, although shipping costs could be an issue.

    All labels will need to be plain, not appealing to children, and make no health claims. For edibles, there may be no dietary claims, and for topicals, there may be no cosmetic claims. For all of the new product classes, packaging and labelling must not contain any elements that associate the product with an alcoholic beverage, alcohol, or an alcohol brand.
