Public Consultations

Make a submission (letter, brief, or other document)

Public consultations on the regulation of cannabis took place from August 21 to September 12, 2017. Thank you to the many people who shared their opinions.

As part of the public consultation on cannabis regulation, the Government of Québec wants to hear what organizations and the individuals think. You can join the conversation by submitting your thoughts and concerns in writing. This can be a brief, a letter, or any other type of text.

To fuel your reflection, you can consult L’encadrement du cannabis au Québec, Document de consultation 2017 (English version to come), available in the Reference Material section.

Québec residents, associations or other groups can make submissions online. You can also give your opinion on cannabis regulation by participating in the online public consultation.
