Guelph, Ont., November 8, 2018 – The City has launched a telephone and ONLINE SURVEY asking residents how they feel about cannabis retail stories in Guelph. Residents have until November 18 to complete the survey.

“Council needs to decide by January 22, 2019, whether or not they will allow privately-owned cannabis retail stores in Guelph,” says Doug Godfrey, general manager of Operations. “Council wants to hear how the community feels about these retails stores in Guelph and this survey will help us get that feedback.”

Staff will present a report to Council on December 17, 2018 that includes the impacts of opting in to private retail stores. Cannabis stores will be privately-owned and operated and licensed by the Alcohol Gaming Commission of Ontario.

The province will distribute $40 million in funding between municipalities that opt in to help address enforcement and private storefronts. The province will release their plan for cannabis retail models on April 1, 2019.

The telephone survey is being conducted by Oracle Poll, however, if residents are not called and still want to participate they can visit guelph.ca/haveyoursay.
