A 15-day public notice period is underway for three proposed cannabis retail outlets in the Golden Horseshoe, including one proposed for the posh Yorkville area of Toronto.

Ameri is proposing to open at 20 Cumberland Street, Ganjika House would be on 106 Main Street South in Brampton, and The Niagara Herbalist would be located at 33 Lakeshore Road in St. Catharines.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission (AGCO) said in a statement Wednesday that the stores, if approved, would represent one of five allocated to the Toronto Region, one of six slated for the GTA Region, and one of seven in the west region.

The public consultation process requires the applicant to post a placard at the proposed store to begin the 15-day public notice period, during which residents and the municipality can make written submissions.

While the plan under the previous Kathleen Wynne government had been to sell recreational cannabis through government stores operated by the LCBO, the Doug Ford government decided to allow private retail stores regulated by the AGCO.
