Got this from the City. Follow the link for more details:
As part of the federal government’s country-wide consultation on proposed new rules governing medical marihuana use, production and distribution, the City provided comments to Health Canada on February 28, 2013. Also in February 2013, City Council directed staff to review all available regulatory tools relevant to the establishment of medical marihuana production facilities in Ottawa and report back to Planning Committee and Council as appropriate.
As of September 9, 2013, draft recommendations will be posted online at http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/public-consultations/planning-and-infrastructure/zoning-review-locations-medical-marihuana. At that time geoOttawa, the City’s online mapping application (http://maps.ottawa.ca/geoOttawa/), will be updated to indicate the locations of those zones that would be proposed to permit a Medical Marihuana Production Facility.
All community groups are encouraged to review the draft recommendations once they are available online. Comments on the draft recommendations will be welcomed until Monday, September 30, 2013 after which time the recommendations will be finalized within a report to Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, Planning Committee, and City Council.
