Recorded Webinar – Cannabis Micro Licence Application Process and Requirements

Recorded Webinar Time: 1.5 Hours Cost: CAD$600+HST Buy Now!


The Cannabis Act establishes that an application for one of the Micro Cultivation/Processing Licence must be filed with Health Canada in the form and manner specified by the Minister and must include the information required by the Minister.

Although security requirements are less demanding in comparison to obtaining a Standard Cultivation/Processing Licence, the application process to acquire a Micro Licence under the Cannabis Act can still be complicated and requires undergoing a strict and thorough review by Health Canada. Applicants must ensure that the information provided in the application is detailed and accurate and clearly demonstrates that they are compliant with all the requirements of the Act. Insufficient or inaccurate information may give rise to grounds for refusal. Extensive details regarding the facility and its operations are required, including: floor plan, site and building information, physical security requirements, Good Product Practices (GPP), Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) Security Clearances, notice to local authorities, administrative forms and quality assurance reports.

This webinar discusses the application process including the form and manner for submitting an application for a Micro Licence and the information that is required to be submitted.
