What's New
Survey, Open House & Town Hall - Cannabis Regulatory Framework

We want your feedback on the regulatory framework for cannabis in New Westminster. This framework will include areas under municipal jurisdiction including regulations for retail sale, production, and public consumption of cannabis in the city.

You can give us your feedback in two ways:

  1. Complete our online survey by June 24, 2018: www.newwestcity.ca/cannabis
  1. Attend an open house / town hall meeting:

Open House: Monday, June 18, 2018
4:30 pm
City Hall Foyer

6:00 pm
Town Hall
City Hall Council Chamber

At the open house, you will be able to review materials, discuss with staff, and provide feedback on the proposed framework. At the town hall meeting, you will be able to provide comment on the proposed framework to Council.

Those interested in addressing Mayor and Council at the town hall are requested to register individually in advance, beginning at 8:00 am on June 7th and continuing until 5:45 pm on June 18th.  Please register by emailing  or by calling 604-527-4523.  All persons present at the town hall will be permitted to address Mayor and Council.  Registered speakers will receive priority and be called to speak in the order that registrations were received. Feedback provided will be used by staff to guide the recommendations presented to Council in the coming months.

Information on the proposed regulatory framework can be round on the City website at www.newwestcity.ca/cannabis.
