Designated Cannabis Sellers Eligible to Operate Online Stores for NWT Customers


As of October 18, 2021, all qualified designated retail cannabis sellers are eligible to operate an online store to serve customers in the NWT.

Currently, ReLeaf NT is the only active cannabis retail outlet interested in operating an online store for residents of the Northwest Territories. They also operate a physical cannabis store in Yellowknife.

The Northwest Territories Alcohol and Cannabis Commission (NTLCC) issued an expression of interest on July 11, 2021 to determine if current designated sellers are interested in operating online stores.

The establishment of online stores is permitted under the Cannabis Products Act and Regulations, and existing contracts with designated vendors have been amended. All vendors licensed to sell and ship cannabis products to residents of the NWT must adhere to the rules set out in the Cannabis Products Act and its regulations. Qualified vendors will continue to provide residents of the NWT with safe and legal access to cannabis products.

ReLeaf NT is a business owned and operated in the North. Orders will be received, fulfilled and shipped by Yellowknife employees.

The former online cannabis store ceased operations on October 17e, 2021.

  • ReLeaf NT was appointed as the seller of cannabis on December 1, 2020 for a period of five years.
