Part of the Canadian government’s motivation to legalize and regulate the sale of cannabis in Canada was to increase the tax base. This includes administering and enforcing a tax framework.

More specifically, Bill C-74 includes amendments to the Excise Act, 2001 which “impose duties that … generally apply to cannabis products sold for both medical and non-medical purposes. Cannabis products … include dried and fresh flowering material (flower), dried and fresh non-flowering material (trim), cannabis oils, as well as vegetative cannabis plant (seedling) and viable seeds (seeds) for home cultivation”. 

As such, to apply for or renew a cannabis license under the Excise Act, applicants are required to provide a minimum of $5,000 and a maximum of $5,000,000 in security to the Canadian Revenue Agency.
