The Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation Act, 2017 allows First Nations to request that the Ontario Cannabis Store not deliver recreational cannabis and related products to their reserve. The council of the band makes the request by passing a resolution to that effect and providing a copy of the resolution to the OCS, as provided for under section 28.1 of the Act. The Ontario Cannabis Store may reasonably require additional information from the council of the band to be able to comply with the request and will make reasonable efforts to comply with the request in a timely manner.
The following First Nations have passed relevant band council resolutions and have taken the steps necessary for the OCS to operationalize their request:
