Open Product Calls

The procurement of recreational cannabis and cannabis accessories at the OCS is done through product calls, which are requests for product submissions to the Category Manager. The OCS currently has introduced an Open Product Call process that allows for submissions to be made at any point in time throughout the year.  Submissions are made as outlined in the “Cannabis Submissions” or “Accessories Submissions” sections.

DISCLAIMER:  Product Calls are meant to provide information concerning the proposed purchase of recreational cannabis and accessories by the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) from licensed producers.  Nothing in these Product Calls shall be construed as creating any commitment by, or on behalf of, the OCS.  All information provided is subject to change at any time by the OCS at its sole and absolute discretion. For clarity, no cannabis products will be purchased by, or sold to, the OCS unless otherwise authorized by law.
