On Jan. 11, the provincial government is holding the lottery selection for the 25 retail cannabis locations expected to open in the spring.
Guelph is situated in the West Region, which includes 13 other eligible municipalities, like Hamilton, Niagara and Kitchener. Seven stores will be granted licenses within those 14 municipalities.
Cannabis Supply Company, which operates 12 clinics across Ontario, will be among the companies vying for a license, said Guelph store manager Ryan Clark.
“I believe between Burlington and Guelph, those are the two stores that are the best contenders for us getting the license,” said Clark.
Cannabis Supply Company, which has its head office in Brantford, is not a dispensary and does not currently sell cannabis from its clinics, noted Clark.
“Right now our main service is helping people get a prescription so they can legally obtain medical marijuana via licensed producers,” he said.
