Six Nations of the Grand River (“SNGR”) enacted the Six Nations Cannabis Control Law (“SNCCL”) in 2019 to regulate the cannabis economy on its Territory from seed to sale.
SNGR’s jurisdiction over the cannabis economy at Six Nations ensures that all on-territory cannabis activity is regulated in a manner that reflects Six Nations own priorities, including the development of a sustainable cannabis economy to advance those priorities, without compromising health and safety.
The SNCCL is harmonized with key elements of the Cannabis Act and Cannabis Regulations (Canada), the Cannabis License Act (Ontario) and Cannabis Control Act (Ontario), particularly regarding health and safety and the protection of youth.
SNCCL revisions were passed by SNGR on February 25, 2021 and accompanying regulations were passed on May 3, 2021.
