The Village of Clinton is located 39 km north of the Trans Canada Highway #1 and Cariboo Highway #97 junction, with an elevation of 887 meters. This active community of 650 residents, with its colorful history of over 150 years and its unique western atmosphere, was founded as a direct result of the "boom" of the Cariboo Gold Rush. Clinton, incorporated in 1963, boasts of hosting one of British Columbia's oldest continuously running events, the Clinton Annual Ball, now held in May of each year. As a midway point between Vancouver and Prince George, Clinton serves as a centre providing amenities to both its own residents and visitors.
Cannabis Public Information
The Village of Clinton seeked input from the community to determine what path to take regarding retail sales of Cannabis. Please see the results of the Public Meeting and the Public Survey Below.
The Municipal Government has the ability to endorse an application for retail sales, determine how many shops can operate in the community, shorten or lengthen the hours of business from the norm, and set standards like the zone it can be sold in and how far from a school it can be located. It can also restrict smoking in publicly owned facilities.
Or, the Municipality can choose to ban retail sales completely. Although Cannabis will still be available for sale online and delivered to Clinton.
