Winners Announced, Municipality Not in Ontario Wide Cannabis Lottery

10

The Province announced the 25 winners for a cannabis store lottery Friday, but the province didn’t announce the municipalities the winners were representing.

What we can tell you is over 8,000 applicants from the North Region were submitted but only two selected for an opportunity to get a license.

The Government of Ontario, through the Alcohol & Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), has released the results of its cannabis retail store lottery to determine who may apply for the province’s first Retail Operator Licences. The lottery selection was completed on January 11, 2019 at 3:16 pm EST.

The AGCO says that 17,320 applicants paid the $75 entry fee for the chance to be one of only 25 retail stores permitted to open by April 1st, 2019. In all, 16,905 applicants were deemed eligible to be included in the draw. 11,084 of those entries were for East region, where Kingston is located.

The winners of the lottery were randomly selected using a third-party-certified AGCO lottery software program. KPMG, contracted as the lottery’s auditor, was present to monitor the lottery to confirm that it was conducted fairly and according to the lottery rules.

The publicly-released information has so far been limited in scope and detail.

As set out in the Lottery rules, the 25 selected applicants will now be required to submit a $50,000 Standby Letter of Credit, submit a Retail Operator Licence Application and make a non-refundable $6,000 fee payment by the end of business day on Friday, January 18, 2019.

  1. The general drug addiction issue has got to be one of the most exploited situational choices in the world.

    So much of the do gooder activity and other involving big bucks behind the guise of care.

  2. The pot mentality is really nothing to be proud of at all. It is putting the Country in such a disgraceful position in the world. So many have more than enough reason to shake their heads thinking of what has been allowed to happen in Canada.
