About the AQIC

With over 75 members, the Quebec Cannabis Industry Association (AQIC) is committed to working with government and stakeholders to advance the Quebec cannabis industry to its full potential and encourage innovation through science and technology.  The AQIC provides a space to share information and reflect upon common challenges and opportunities. The Association was founded in 2019, on the principle that we can accomplish more together. And by working together as one voice, we can advance our common goals of raising the bar on a safe and sustainable industry in Quebec

 The AQIC also plays an educational role by educating the general public about cannabis consumption. We also monitor and analyze current policies, advocate for changes in the cannabis legislation and provide recommendations to provincial and federal government officials.
