In anticipation of the legalization of cannabis Statistics Canada is gathering, compiling and publishing data on both the medical and non-medical use of cannabis. One of the important statistics the agency needs to measure is the price of cannabis.

All responses and any other information shared with Statistics Canada will stay confidential as required by the Statistics Act.
