It is important to note that each province has different regulations on Cannabis and therefore delivery options are limited by your location. Nonetheless, let’s get started!
Cannabis delivery in British Columbia
If you are quarantining in beautiful British Columbia, you may order your Cannabis from the provincially-run retailer, BC Cannabis Stores. Products will be shipped via Canada Post. Delivery is offered for an $8 flat fee and those located in Lower Mainland, Sidney, and Victoria can enjoy two-day delivery while shipping to other areas may take three to seven days for the same price.
Update – BC Cannabis Stores have reduced the shipping fee from $8 to $6. Customers ordering from BC Cannabis Stores online will be required to collect their orders from a post office location once they receive a notice card indicating where they can pick up their items.
Cannabis delivery in Alberta
In Alberta, private cannabis retailers are not permitted to deliver cannabis, but not to worry, you can order directly from the crown-run corporation. Alberta Cannabis is the only place Albertans can order Cannabis for delivery. Shipping is then provided by either Canada Post or Purolator at a flat cost of $4.95 per order. Shipment time will vary depending on your location and is subject to delays due to COVID-19.

Cannabis delivery in Quebec
Quebec has the Société Québécoise du Cannabis, aka the SQDC website to order Cannabis legally. The website is in French (naturally) so if you read English, you will need to change it over in the top left corner. Cannabis ordered here costs a flat delivery rate of $5 which is pretty dang good! Unfortunately, orders are not delivered on the same day as they are ordered, or maybe not the next day either. Canada Post handles the deliveries for Cannabis in Quebec, to it could take 1-3 business days.
Cannabis delivery in Nova Scotia
The Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) website is where Cannabis orders can be placed for delivery. For a flat fee of $7, your Cannabis delivery will be sent via Canada Post. Which, by the way, may take 2-3 business days. When using the NSLC website, in order to unlock the Cannabis tab it says, “you must visit an NSLC store with valid identification to confirm you are 19 years of age or more to receive an online access code.” If you need to go to an NSLC store and grab a code, here is a locator to find the one nearest to you.
