Rezoning - 302-992 Dorman Rd

The owners of Happy Isle Cannabis Company, operating at 203-992 Dorman Road, have applied to amend the zoning to permit their store, currently operating under a Temporary Use Permit, to have permanent zoning approval.

In response, Bowen Island Council is considering changes to the Land Use Bylaw to permit the sale of retail cannabis anywhere a retail use is permitted, subject to receiving a Provincial Licence. Land Use Bylaw Amendment Bylaw No. 530, 2020 was drafted to enact those changes.

Bylaw 530, 2020 was given First Reading at the January 11, 2021 Council Meeting. Council is also considering a policy that would provide items for Council to consider when reviewing an application for a retail cannabis store.

A virtual open house to gather input from the community was held on Thursday, June 24, 2021.

Bylaw 530, 2020 was given Second Reading at the July 12, 2021 Council Meeting, and was referred to a Public Hearing.

Inquiries regarding the proposed bylaws may be directed to Daniel Martin at 604-947-4255 or by email at
