On January 21, 2019, Aurora Town Council voted in favour of allowing retail cannabis outlets in the municipality. The location of 15243 Yonge street has been selected in the AGCO second round of the cannabis lottery. The lottery is an allocation of retail locations based on expressions of Interest. There is still a formal application process and one of the requirements for the lottery winners is that they must submit their applications for a Retail Operator License and Retail Store Authorization by August 28 at which point the AGCO will undertake its full eligibility and licensing review.
When the formal application has been submitted it will be posted on the AGCO website and a sign will be placed on the store front. Town staff, local and regional residents will have the ability to comment on the application once it is received and will have 15 days to submit any comments for consideration to the AGCO. We will ensure the community is informed of the timeframe to send their comments to the AGCO once we receive notice about the application.
