10 New Recreational Cannabis Dispensaries Coming To Alberta

Early Friday, January 25, 2019, the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) announced they will be opening the market to 10 new recreational dispensary applicants.

This comes 2 months after the November 21 announcement that the AGLC suspended issuing cannabis licences to recreational dispensaries to combat the lack of recreational cannabis supply available from liscenced producers.

The AGLC has been working hard to improve their processes’ and infrastructure after a rocky start to the new year with cannabis shortages across Alberta, although experienced across most of Canada.


“After seeing a modest improvement in supply over the last few weeks, we are confident the inventory can accommodate an additional 10 retail locations. AGLC continues to work with our licensed producers and current retailers towards solutions that will support a sustainable marketplace.”

Alain Maisonneuve, President & CEO, AGLC


The AGLC notes that the first ten applicants post November suspension will be first in line for this round.
