Nunavut | Nunavut


Nunavut has not yet introduced cannabis legislation, but the government has been consulting with stakeholders and residents and is currently seeking feedback on its proposed regulatory options for legalized recreational cannabis.

To protect youth and limit second-hand smoke exposure, the GN proposes to prohibit smoking or vaping cannabis where tobacco is restricted and in certain other areas including:

  • vehicles,
  • school grounds,
  • hospital or health centre grounds, and
  • playgrounds.

The GN is not planning to permit cafes and lounges where cannabis can be consumed on-site. Proposed legislation will establish territorial offences and infractions for consumption in vehicles, public consumption, and public intoxication.

Municipalities will be able to restrict cannabis use in certain municipal spaces using existing authorities.
