City accepts development permit applications for cannabis retail sales starting July 24

The City will start accepting applications for cannabis retail locations starting July 24, 2018, two weeks later than the originally scheduled date of July 11, 2018. The date has been delayed due a backlog in the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission pre-qualification process, which is required as part of the City’s Development Permit process.

“With the volume Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) is experiencing, we know not all potential applicants will have their pre-qualification complete by July 11,” said Erin Stuart, Inspections and Licensing Manager. “We want to ensure the process is fair for everyone, so we’re working with the ALGC to allow applicants to demonstrate that they’ve submitted to the AGLC rather than completed the full pre-qualification as part of their application.”

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, starting at 8 a.m, on Tuesday, July 24, and all completed development permit application packages must be submitted in person at City Hall, 4914 48 Avenue.
