Manitoba and Saskatchewan expand retail footprint with store-in-store licences

As Saskatchewan and Manitoba open to more cannabis retail licence applications, companies large and small are assessing the opportunity. Manitoba greenlit applications for new cannabis retailers on June 1, and Saskatchewan will be accepting new applications in September. Both provinces are allowing store-in-store licences.
For a province with a hybrid public/private model, this provides flexibility, as it ensures access for people living in small communities.
