How to apply to be a Licensed Cannabis Producer or Packager

With the legalization of recreational marijuana across Canada there has been a growing cannabis industry. For anyone interested in cultivating, producing or packaging cannabis for sale you need to apply for a cannabis license from the Government of Canada by filling out Form L300 - Cannabis License Application. As part of your application you must also provide a security in the form of a L302 Surety Bond to cover the applicable duties owed to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Posting security with the CBSA

For importers to Canada and licensed customs brokers who ask for release of their goods before payment and for uncertified cheque privileges must post security representing 100% of their average monthly amount of outstanding duties and taxes (less the goods and services tax in the case of resident importers) during the previous 12-month period, up to a maximum of $10 million.

Foreign Executor Bonds available online.

In most jurisdictions in Canada a bond is required where an executor appointed in a will resides out-of-province. The purpose of the bond is to provide protection to the creditors and beneficiaries of the estate. While under circumstances an application may be made to the court to dispense with the bond requirement there is no guarantee that the court will agree and the extra process involves additional time and cost. Praesto Presto makes it easy to purchase a Foreign Executor Bond online.
