The Société québécoise du cannabis is a subsidiary of the government-owned SAQ. It was tabled in the National Assembly of Quebec on November 16, 2017, and was officially adopted on June 12, 2018.[1][2]


Under the Act respecting the Société des alcools du Québec,[3] the SQDC's revenues from the sale of cannabis must be used for the following purposes:

  • The elimination of any deficit that the SQDC may incur;
  • The transfer to be made by the Minister of Finance each year to the Cannabis Prevention and Research Fund, and also the prevention of the use of psychoactive substances, as well as the fight against related harms.
