The date for submitting your lottery expression of interest is quickly approaching. August 7-9, 2019 (8:00 pm EST is the cutoff time) is the deadline for submitting the prequalification requirements.
The prequalification requirements provided by the Alcohol Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) consisted of having three documents being a letter of secured retail space, a bank letter confirming access to $250,000, and a bank letter confirming the ability to get a $50,000 standby letter of credit.
If you are lucky enough to win a spot in the second allocation of Ontario cannabis retail lottery here are 7 requirements that need to be considered if your EOI is selected on August 20, 2019.
50 stores (42 for the general public and 8 for native reserves) will be allocated from the draw. If all goes as planned, Ontario will see the additional retail stores open and ready for business as early as October 2019.
