The Alberta Cannabis Council was formed to create a united voice for the legal cannabis industry in Alberta.
The ACC is managed, run and funded entirely by it’s members through their volunteering of their times, membership fees, and sharing of their resources & knowledge.
Our members are dedicated to the success of the legal cannabis industry. We recognize that an opportunity has been created for Albertans, to replace black market business with long term and sustainable jobs. Not only are we fighting illegal drug sales, we are creating stable incomes for thousands of Alberta families.
The ACC is Canada’s largest cannabis professional association, with more than 60 member companies. Our retail members include more than 150 retail locations, and together our members employ more than 5,000 Albertans directly in the growing, processing, and sale of cannabis in Alberta. Our affiliate companies employ thousands of other Albertans, who benefit directly from the cannabis sector.
It is our goal to continue the growth of the legal market that provides Health Canada Approved cannabis products from safe retail environments to consumers who choose to consume cannabis.

We aim to have the AGLC and the ACC work more collaboratively for the benefit of the industry. Our goal is to ensure our members are both the go-to voice for the AGLC, but also that our concerns and suggestions are formed and voiced in a manner that ensures their effectiveness.
In 2021 we want to increase the size of the ACC membership to include approximately 50% of all cannabis license holders in Alberta. This will allow us to facilitate a variety of programs and support our other strategic initiatives.
We will be developing stronger relationships between our members, along with the opportunities for more organized discussions amongst the membership.
