OCS Publishes Q1: A Quarterly Review Insights Publication

October 20, 2021 (TORONTO) – Today the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) published A Quarterly Review (April 1 – June 30, 2021): Ontario’s first quarter of 2021, as a resource for the Ontario cannabis industry. It provides comprehensive data including detailed sales figures by category and brand, pricing information and consumer trends.

The end of the first quarter of 2021-2022 commemorated the beginning of the third full year of retail stores operating in Ontario. Despite the impacts of lockdowns in the fight against COVID-19, Ontario’s legal cannabis sector showed resilience and growth. This quarter marked the achievement of a critical milestone in the legalization of cannabis with almost 50% of all cannabis sold through the legal market.

Notable insights from the report include:

  • Ontario consumers purchased more than 41.9 million grams of cannabis.
  • 92% of sales occurred through private licensed retailers.
  • The number of communities served by retail stores doubled.
  • Ontario continued to offer the broadest catalogue of cannabis products in Canada, with the highest national recreational share of cannabis.
