On December 21, 2020, the Premier of Ontario announced a Provincewide Shutdown which all licensees are required to comply with. The Provincewide Shutdown will go into effect as of Saturday, December 26, 2020, at 12:01 a.m. and is expected to last for 14 days in Northern Ontario and 28 days for the remainder of Ontario. The impacts of these time-limited measures will be evaluated throughout this period to determine if it is safe to lift any restrictions or if they need to be extended.
As a result, Cannabis retailers across the province of Ontario will not be permitted to allow patrons to enter the indoor area of their businesses. To support cannabis retail stores licensed and authorized by the AGCO and cannabis consumers in Ontario, the Government of Ontario is allowing those retail stores to complete sales through delivery and curbside pick-up services.
