What’s the tax rate?
Canada’s federal government has proposed a cannabis excise tax across each province/territory of 10 per cent of the product price, or $1 per gram, whichever is higher. The federal government will hand over 75% of excise tax revenue to provinces for the first two years after legalization.
Sales tax rates of 5-15% may be applied by each individual province in addition to the federal excise tax. (Further details are forthcoming.)
What happens to medical cannabis?
Nothing. Canada’s medical cannabis system remains exactly as it was prior to October 17, 2018.
