Cannabis Accessory Supplier Registration

CANNABIS ACCESSORY SUPPLIER REGISTRATION


WELCOME

Welcome to the Liquor Distribution Branch's cannabis accessory supplier registration page. On this page you will find the necessary information and instructions to successfully register your company as a supplier of cannabis accessories.

Registration is only open to products that have been selected for the initial BC wholesale assortment. The plan for future product calls will be communicated at a later date.

The Liquor Distribution Branch is asking all suppliers to complete the vendor registration process by no later than August 15, 2018.

Given the fast-approaching dates for legalization later this year, please note the time sensitivity of the August 15 deadline associated with vendor and product registration.

Prior to making your submission, please use the checklist on the first page. Carefully review all instructions, ensure you’ve met all specifications and requirements and that the submissions are complete.

We look forward to working with you as we take the next steps together in this developing industry.
