Cannabis Legalization

The Government of Canada is planning for the legalization of recreational cannabis in the summer of 2018. Cannabis is a plant which can be smoked, vaporized, or infused into food and drinks. Sale of edible products will not be part of the initial legalization legislation, but will likely be introduced at a later date.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to gather information from the residents of the Town of Creston which will inform Council for the creation of appropriate Bylaw amendments for the regulation of recreational cannabis in Creston. Most aspects of legalization are the responsibility of the Federal and Provincial governments, but there are some aspects which the Town of Creston anticipates having the ability to regulate. These include:

  • Retail Locations and Regulations
  • Retail Hours of Operation
  • Public Consumption
  • Land Use and Zoning
  • Home Cultivation

The Town of Creston is inviting feedback from the community regarding the upcoming legalization of recreational cannabis. Please complete this questionnaire online, or download a printable copy here and return it to Town Hall prior to end of business hours on April 6th, 2018.


Update: Due to a number of requests, we have extended the intake for this survey to 4:30pm on April 6th. If you didn't get your submission in, here is a final chance to do so!

Questionnaire now closed.
