Cannabis Legislation and Policy Study Recommendations
The Federal Cannabis Act came into effect in October 2018, legalizing the production, sale and use of cannabis for recreational purposes in Canada. While the production of cannabis is addressed by the Fort Erie Official Plan and the Town’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law, these development policies are reflective of the 2014 Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. With the 2018 change in legislation, commercial cannabis production is now permitted for both medical and recreational purposes. The Town’s planning policies no longer capture the full range of legal uses. For more detailed information on this Study including frequently asked questions, key dates, and the ability to provide input, complete a short survey and stay informed on the project please visit Let’s Talk Fort Erie at
