Public Consultation: Strict regulation of edible cannabis, extracts and topicals

This consultation opened on December 20, 2018. It will close on February 20, 2019.

Health Canada is seeking feedback on draft regulations to minimize the public health and public safety risks posed by:

  • cannabis extracts
  • cannabis topicals

These cannabis products will be permitted for legal sale under the Cannabis Act no later than October 17, 2019.

The proposed regulations and Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement (RIAS) are published in the Canada Gazette, Part I. For more information on the proposed regulations, please see the Backgrounder: Consultation on the strict regulation of additional cannabis products.
