Mississauga Cannabis Market Expands: Over 40 Stores Open in First Year After Legalization

One year after legalizing cannabis stores, Mississauga has seen a notable increase in the number of cannabis shops, with over 40 now authorized to operate. This development comes after the city council voted to lift a longstanding ban, leading to a surge in applications for cannabis retail outlets.

Initially, the City of Mississauga, alongside other communities like Oakville, Markham, Whitby, and Vaughan, had opted out of allowing cannabis stores due to concerns about zoning and proximity to schools. However, the persistence of illegal shops and the difficulty in shutting them down influenced the decision to reconsider the ban.

In April last year, the Mississauga council, with new members on board, voted 8-4 in favor of allowing cannabis shops, overturning the previous restriction. Following this decision, applications for opening cannabis stores in Mississauga started flooding in. The first to open was Pop’s Cannabis at Clarkson Crossing Mall in May 2023.

As of now, there are 42 approved cannabis shops in Mississauga, and 11 more are expected to open, showing a significant expansion in the local cannabis market. These shops are distributed across various areas in Mississauga, including Streetsville, Churchill Meadows, Erin Mills, Clarkson, Erindale, Creditview, East Credit, Hurontario, Cooksville, Port Credit, Lakeview, Dixie, Applewood, Rathwood, and Malton, indicating a widespread acceptance and integration of cannabis retail within the city.

This growth reflects a changing perspective on cannabis and its retail, signaling a shift towards a more regulated and accessible market for consumers in Mississauga and potentially setting a trend for other municipalities that were initially hesitant to embrace legal cannabis retail.
