CAN: More than half licenses are micros, Health Canada says

Of all post-legalization federal cannabis production licenses, more than half have been micros, Health Canada has confirmed. 

Health Canada says that of the 199 licence holders who applied for their licence on or after October 17, 2018, just over half of these are micro cultivators, processors, or nurseries. 

Of the 479 currently active cannabis licence holders, Health Canada confirms that 280 had applied prior to October 17, 2018, either under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations, the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, or the Narcotics Control Regulations. The remaining 199 licence holders applied for their licence on or after October 17, 2018.  

Although there are 484 licences listed, four are inactive. Three of these are currently listed as Revoked and one as Expired.
