New Regulation on Cannabis

Published on 11-30-2018

In order to offer its citizens a wholesome environment, free of the harmful effects and nuisances caused by second-hand smoke, the City of Dorval has modified its by-law concerning nuisances to ban the consumption of cannabis in any form whatsoever, on all public property.

According to the definition of the City’s by-law, public property includes streets, lanes, alleys, public squares and places, including sidewalks, medians, ditches, stairways, off-road cycle paths, rights-of-way bordering a public thoroughfare, parks, playgrounds, and public gardens, as well as any other area belonging to the City. It also includes buildings, lands, shelters, or other property serving the purpose of public utilities; buildings, shelters, and land belonging to a school board; as well as all businesses comprising a shopping centre.

In regard to the use of tobacco, e-cigarettes, and other related products, the City of Dorval has, by the same token, taken the opportunity to extend the prohibition to parks and green spaces as well as streets, sidewalks, and other outdoor places where recreational activities, shows, block parties, or other public events are held.

These new provisions, adopted by the City Council on November 19, are now in force. The imposed restrictions are added to the ones already set out in federal and provincial laws. Failure to comply with the provisions of the City of Dorval’s by-law is subject to a fine ranging between $150 and $300 for a first offence, and between $300 and $600 for a second offence.

With regards to the points of sale of cannabis, a modification made to the City’s zoning by-law now restricts this type of business to the industrial zone situated in the northern part of Dorval’s territory, away from residential areas and schools.

The City of Dorval reminds building owners that the provincial law framing cannabis already foresees a ban on consuming cannabis in the common areas of a building of more than two housing units, and that the owners are allowed a period of 90 days after the entry into force of the new regulations on cannabis to modify their tenants’ lease conditions in order to anticipate the ban on smoking cannabis inside the building.
