TORONTO – Ontario’s government-run cannabis distributor has cancelled its tender for couriers to make same-day pot deliveries. The provincial corporation tasked with the online sale and distribution of recreational cannabis posted a cancellation notice on Friday via the Ontario government’s tender portal.
The Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation, which conducts e-commerce as the Ontario Cannabis Store, did not cite a specific reason for why it decided not to proceed, and the OCS was not immediately available for comment.
The corporation first posted the tender in January, calling for “expedited same-day delivery” for OCS orders. The project was set to begin as early as March in the Greater Toronto Area.
