B.C. Indigenous Cannabis Product program

    Program overview

    In keeping with its commitment to develop a robust and diverse legal cannabis economy in B.C., inclusive of rural and Indigenous communities, the Province launched the B.C. Indigenous Cannabis Product (BCICP) program.  

    The program, launching January 18, 2022, will highlight cannabis products from B.C.-based Indigenous producers in private cannabis retail stores, BC Cannabis Stores and online, helping consumers easily identify Indigenous products and make purchasing decisions.  

    The program is available to federally licensed cannabis producers that have at least 51 per cent Indigenous ownership and whose facilities are located in British Columbia (see eligibility criteria below). 

    The program is also available to licensed cannabis retail stores to highlight BCICP product within their outlets.
