The Ontario Cannabis Store, the province's sole legal online retailer for recreational cannabis, has entered into supply agreements with 26 licensed producers to ensure that a safe, diverse and high-quality supply of cannabis is ready and available upon legalization this fall.

Starting on October 17, consumers 19 and older will be able to purchase cannabis via an online retail platform provided by the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS). The OCS online channel will include a verification system that will ensure safe at-home delivery for cannabis products, the agency said.

"These agreements are a significant milestone that signals our readiness for the legalization of cannabis in Ontario," says Patrick Ford, president and chief operating officer of the OCS. "These agreements will allow us to safely and securely provide a broad variety of cannabis products to adult customers when online sales begin."

Supply agreements with authorized Health Canada producers were achieved through a competitive process, resulting in a range of cannabis products and size formats among the categories of dried flower, cannabis oil and cannabis seeds. In the coming months, the OCS will continue to hold competitive product calls to expand its selection of available cannabis products and to be responsive to the preferences of Ontario customers. The OCS is also working to finalize supply agreements with cannabis accessory suppliers to ensure a diverse selection of accessories is also available for customers.

The OCS has entered into initial supply agreements with the following companies:
