Consideration of Legalized Cannabis

In consideration of the legalization of recreational and medical cannabis by Canada on October 17, 2018, Westbank First Nation (WFN) is considering making amendments to the WFN Safe Premises Law 2010-03 (SPL), WFN Business Licence Law (BLL) and the WFN Land Use Law (LUL) in connection with the planned legalization of cannabis.

Toward this end, WFN sought the feedback of Members during two meetings held March 22 and April 12, 2018. As well, Members were provided the opportunity to submit written comments, concerns and suggestions, or complete a Member Survey regarding the proposed amendments, with a closing date of September 7, 2018. Results of that survey can be found below.
