Designated cannabis vendors eligible to operate online stores for NWT customers

Public Service Announcement

Yellowknife — October 18, 2021

As of October 18, 2021, all qualified designated retail cannabis vendors are eligible to operate an online store to serve NWT customers. 

 

Currently, ReLeaf NT is the only active retail cannabis outlet interested in operating an online store for residents of the Northwest Territories. They also operate a brick-and-mortar cannabis store in Yellowknife.

 

The Northwest Territories Liquor and Cannabis Commission (NTLCC) issued an expression of interest on July 11, 2021 to determine if current designated vendors were interested in operating online stores.

 

The establishment of online stores is allowed under the Cannabis Products Act and Regulations, and existing contracts with the designated vendors were amended. All vendors that are authorized to sell and ship cannabis products to NWT residents must adhere to the rules set out in the Cannabis Products Act, and Regulation. Qualified vendors will continue to offer NWT residents safe and legal access to cannabis products.

 

ReLeaf NT is a northern owned and operated business. Orders will be received, fulfilled and shipped by employees in Yellowknife.

 

The previous online cannabis store ceased operation on October 17th, 2021.

  • ReLeaf NT was designated as a cannabis vendor on December 1, 2020 for a period of five years.
