Nunavut was the last jurisdiction of Canada to pass their Cannabis Legalization Framework.
The Nunavut Liquor Commission (NULC) will be responsible for the distribution and retail of cannabis. Private licencing for retail is also a possibility.
Nunavut residents are not prohibited to grow their own plants, but might face restrictions as per regulations.
INFORMATION AT A GLANCE
Where to Buy?
Nunavut will start sales online, by phone, and through government agents. There will be no physical retail stores at first, but provincial regulations allow for private licencing. Outright prohibition (or “dry” communities) will not be permitted.
19 years is the minimum age to buy, carry, use, and share.
Public Use will be allowed under the same rules as tobacco smoking. Use will not be allowed in places commonly frequented by children, hospital grounds, during public events, and inside vehicles. Cannabis lounges where non-smoked cannabis can be sold and consumed might be allowed per Nunavut legislation.

Legal recreational cannabis in Canada is sourced from Licensed Producers only. This ensures quality assurance, 3rd party testing, and other important regulations are strictly followed.
All provinces and territories have set 30 grams as the maximum amount an individual can buy or carry in public at a time.
