On April 30, 2019, Niagara Falls City Council passed a motion to enact an interim control by-law respecting the use of properties for the cultivation, production or processing of cannabis. Section 38 of the Planning Act authorizes the Council of a municipality to pass an interim control by-law where the Council has directed that a review or study be undertaken in respect of land use planning policies in the municipality, or in any defined area or areas thereof.

On June 25, 2019, City Council passed By-law 2019-76 that Staff carry out a review in respect of the land use planning policies and zoning regulations respecting the use of properties that are zoned for the cultivation, production or processing of cannabis and report to Council with the results and any recommendations resulting from the review.

The City has hired SGL Planning & Design Inc. to prepare a background report leading to recommendations to regulate cannabis production. The consultants are required to hold a Public Information Centre (PIC) to receive input from the public. This meeting will be advertised in the Niagara Falls Review once the date has been set.
