Licensed Producers in QuebecThe licensed producers (LPs) in Quebec listed below are all regulated by Health Canada. The agency issues federal licences to licensed cultivators, licensed processors, and licensed sellers (for medical use) of cannabis under the Cannabis Act* The rigorous LP application process requires many steps to ensure safety and security. Although cannabis is legalized federally, each province can control how and where cannabis is sold for non-medical adult use. The provinces also have the power to regulate other aspects of cannabis use including raising the minimum age limit and setting out rules about use in public.
