New Brunswick Cannabis Retail Licence

What you need to know

There are currently no opportunities for private retailers in New Brunswick, as all cannabis outlets and online sales are authorized and regulated by the government-owned Cannabis NB, which is a subsidiary of the New Brunswick Liquor Corporation (ANBL). There are currently 20 Cannabis NB dispensaries in New Brunswick. In November 2019, Cannabis NB announced that it will transition from a crown corporation into the private sector due to significant losses incurred. A major challenge has been that unlike other smaller provinces like Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, New Brunswick only permits stand-alone cannabis retail stores that are not associated with other stores (e.g., liquor stores). New Brunswick received 8 proposals to privatize cannabis sales in response to a December 2019 request for proposals (RFP) for a single private operator. The government will announce a single private operator in the spring of 2020. The eight companies that submitted proposals are:
  • Canopy Growth Corp.
  • Fire & Flower Inc.
  • Green Shop Cannabis Ltd.
  • Kiaro Brands Inc.
  • Loblaw Companies Ltd.
  • New Brunswick Association of Cannabis Distributors
  • RSL NB
  • YSS Corp.
Once New Brunswick transitions to a private retail model, CannDelta will be here to help!
