GN seeks community input for proposed cannabis store in Iqaluit
Company applies to open cannabis store at 760 Queen Elizabeth Way
Competition could be heating up in Iqaluit’s cannabis retail sector.
The Government of Nunavut is seeking community input on an application by Higher Experience Inc. to open a store at 760 Queen Elizabeth Way.
If approved, it would be a second cannabis retailer for Iqaluit, in addition to Nuna Cannabis, located on Federal Road.
The proposal is to open a store where cannabis is sold to and accessible only by adults aged 19 and older.
Under Nunavut’s cannabis laws, the territorial government must consult the community when such an application is received.
Proposed by Higher Experience Inc., the store would be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily except Tuesdays and statutory holidays.
Cannabis stores may also use sensory display items, such as smell jars, to discuss products with customers.
Iqaluit residents can send their comments or concerns over the proposed cannabis store in Iqaluit to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 867-975-6821.
The deadline to submit feedback is May 25.
