Regulating Medical Marihuana Production Facilities in the Agricultural Land Reserve Bylaw Standard

The Minister of Agriculture has established a Minister's Bylaw Standard to guide local government bylaw development regulating medical marihuana production facilities licensed by Health Canada’s Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations and located in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The March 2015 Discussion Paper and Minister's Bylaw Standard explains the rationale for establishing this Minister's Bylaw Standard. The March 2015 document incorporates the feedback received on the September 2014 discussion paper and further analysis by ministry staff. The definitions and bylaw criteria are in Part 4 of the document and will be incorporated into the Ministry's Guide for Bylaw Development in Farming Areas.
