Ottawa bylaw amendment for cannabis production and cultivation coming soon

Larry Newman

In response to the terms of the 2017 Ontario Cannabis Control Act, the City of Ottawa will amend applicable zoning bylaws to:

• rename “Medical marijuana production facility” to ”Cannabis cultivation and production facility”

• specify that outdoor cultivation including “micro cultivation and processing” may be permitted in specific zones.

Amendments to these bylaws will be considered by both Planning Committee and Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee. Decisions are expected by 2 May 2019.
