Cannabis in Manitoba

Cannabis and First Nations.

Six Manitoba First Nations entered into formal partnerships and investment arrangements with companies selected as provincial cannabis retailers. First Nations participation was a key criterion for choosing retailers in the initial Request for Proposals. The following First Nations will be among the first communities in Manitoba to have a non-medical retail cannabis store, opening on or after October 17, 2018:

  • Waywayseecappo First Nation
  • Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation
  • Long Plain First Nation
  • Opaskwayak Cree Nation
  • Peguis First Nation
  • Brokenhead Ojibway Nation

First Nations abide by the same the rules and licensing requirements that non-medical cannabis retailers do. First Nations interested in non-medical cannabis opportunities should contact
