British Columbia (OC 30/2023)

January 24, 2023 

The Lieutenant Governor, on the recommendation by the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General and Deputy Premier and with the consent of the Executive Council ordered that section 13 of the Cannabis Control and Licensing Amendment Act (2022) is brought into force, and that section 30 of the Cannabis Control Regulation (B.C. Reg. 204/2018) is repealed.

Section 13 of the Cannabis Control and Licensing Amendment Act (2022) pertains to Information deemed to be supplied in confidence. information in the custody or under the control of the general manager, whether or not supplied to the general manager, that relates to an application under this Act, to a licensee or to a licensee’s business operations is deemed to be supplied to the general manager in confidence. Section 30 deals with the prescribed grounds relating to reconsideration orders under compliance and enforcement. 

If you are a licensee or permittee and you are served with an enforcement order (other than an order issued after a waiver is signed), you can have the order reconsidered. This means that the initial decision is reviewed.

The Government of British Columbia passed the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act (CCLA), Cannabis Distribution Act (CDA), Cannabis Licensing Regulation, and Cannabis Control Regulation. This legislation establishes the framework for compliance and enforcement of cannabis in the province. In addition to creating provincial violation tickets, it limits non-public possession of dried cannabis or an equivalent amount to dried cannabis, establishes comprehensive rules for the public consumption of non-medical cannabis, the regulation of cannabis licences, and production of non-medical cannabis.
