Production to Consumption: Legalization of Cannabis & Real Estate 


On October 17, recreational cannabis was legalized in Canada. The world is watching as legalization has created the “green rush” with an investment boom and a myriad of business opportunities. Legalization of cannabis no doubt will have far-reaching business, social and economic implications and commercial real estate is no exception.  

On Monday October 22, leaders in this blossoming industry will engage in an in-depth discussion about the cycle of producing and selling cannabis in Canada, with a special emphasis on real estate. 

What you’ll learn and take away:

  • How producers and retailers will operate within the Canadian legal landscape governing production and sales. 
  • A licensed cannabis producer will explain the production process, the real estate that producers require and occupy, as well as the opportunities and challenges surrounding supply and demand. 
  • A cannabis retailer will provide an overview of the products sold and will inform you about the specific requirements retailers will have for real estate.
