[ARCHIVED] Cannabis Use and Sale in Banff

On October 17, 2018, federal legislation comes into effect to legalize limited cannabis possession and consumption in Canada. Smoking and vaping cannabis in the Banff townsite will be allowed only on private property, if not prohibited by the property owner/manager.

Smoking and vaping of cannabis will be prohibited in all public places in the Town of Banff, including:
  • sidewalks, trails and paths
  • streets, alleys and lanes
  • parks, forests and green spaces
  • public structures or street furniture
The restriction on cannabis spoking applies in all places where tobacco smoking is already prohibited, and all the places where public alcohol consumption is prohibited.
