The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario held a draw to select who can apply for 42 authorizations

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario’s (AGCO) most recent lottery results are out, with more retail stores potentially coming to Hamilton, Burlington and the Niagara area.

On Wednesday morning, AGCO announced the individuals selected in their Aug. 20 lottery who would be able to apply for licenses.

If their applications are approved, Hamilton Mountain will get a store on Upper James Street. St. Catharines and Niagara Falls will get one more store each.

Burlington will double the amount of its cannabis stores with two more: one on Plains Road and one on Guelph Line.

There were 4,864 eligible entrants to the draw, and 42 were selected. Applicants have one week to apply for a cannabis retail operator licence and a retail store authorization.
