Alberta Welcomes 26 New Cannabis Dispensary Licenses via the AGLC


It looks as though the availability of recreational cannabis for Albertans is getting better with every day.

Alberta Gaming Liquor & Cannabis (AGLC) has opened business to 26 new cannabis dispensary owners, bringing the total number of licenses in Alberta to 101, yet still under 30 in Calgary.

The 26 new recreational cannabis dispensary licenses make a total of 36 issued in 2019 thus far.

This announcement comes mid April 2019 as supply chain issues and lack of licensed producers continue to pose troubles for dispensary owners in Alberta.

Late in 2018, the AGLC froze cannabis licenses as a shortage of recreational cannabis struck Alberta. Since, the province of Alberta has welcomed a handful of new licensed producers with the goal of meeting Alberta’s high demand for cannabis.
