PEI Cannabis License Opportunities

There are currently no opportunities for private retailers in Prince Edward Island (PEI), as all cannabis outlets and online sales are authorized and regulated by the government-owned Prince Edward Island Cannabis Management Corporation (PEICMC), which operates under the branded name PEI Cannabis.

There are currently four publicly-owned cannabis retail stores in PEI, whose locations were chosen based on population and accessibility. Depending on sales, it is expected that new PEI Cannabis retail locations will open up in the near future.

The four locations are:

  • Charlottetown
  • Montague
  • O’Leary
  • Summerside

There are currently no plans for PEI to move to a private retail model. However, if that happens in the future, CannDelta will be here to help!
