The Ontario Cannabis Store, the province’s legal online retailer and wholesaler for recreational cannabis, held its first orientation event on February 28 with private retailers currently going through the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) licensing process. The day-long event strengthened relationships with the regulatory applicants and provided them with the information they need to do business with the OCS once licensed by the AGCO.

“This meeting is critical to launching our business relationship with future retailers and exemplifies our commitment to supporting their continued success,” said Patrick Ford, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario Cannabis Store.

“The team at Ontario Cannabis Store has taken the time to understand our business and our objectives and to build a positive partnership with us from the very start,” said Kevin of the proposed Niagara Herbalist store in St. Catharines. “We have a tremendous amount to accomplish in a short period of time and feel we have strong support from OCS and are excited about moving forward with them.”

Future Licensed Retailers will also have a dedicated OCS account management team to assist with their onboarding, wholesale account set-up and how to order product from the OCS. In light of the current national supply shortage, the OCS has established ordering standards that will ensure a fair allocation of supply is available to all retailers. The OCS has also established a transparent wholesale pricing structure that will support a sustainable business model.

The OCS is focused on providing adult consumers responsible access to recreational cannabis through and operating the wholesale distribution network for Licensed Retailers in Ontario. Since legalization, the OCS has fulfilled over 600,000 orders across Ontario.
