Regulation of cannabis in Québec

An approach focused on public health and safety

Since the federal Act to provide legal access to cannabis was tabled in April 2017, analyses carried out by the Québec Government have shown that the introduction of this type of legislation would generate a number of complex issues for Québec.

Various committees have been set up to establish Government guidelines and complete the work required to prepare a framework Bill that will be tabled in the National Assembly in the fall of 2017. Before the Bill is tabled, however, the Québec Government will organize public activities with experts and population, to fuel the process of reflection.
