    What you need to know

    Alberta has led the way in the expansion of private retail stores since legalization, with more than 600 licensed stores having opened since 2019. The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) is responsible for issuing cannabis retail store licenses, overseeing distribution, and regulating the activities of licensed operators.

    Private retailers are only permitted to sell cannabis products and accessories approved by the AGLC, which operates Alberta’s only legal recreational online cannabis store. Retailers are not permitted to sell cannabis products at the same location where tobacco and alcohol are sold.

    All prospective retail store applicants must receive municipal approval before the AGLC will issue a retail cannabis license. The AGLC requires each applicant to undergo extensive background checks and to disclose detailed personal and financial information.
