Welcome to the homepage of the BC Independent Cannabis Association (BCICA).

The BCICA is an incorporated not-for profit organization that represents a wide variety of stakeholders from the long-standing BC cannabis economy.

The BCICA is not a trade association. Membership is available to the public for a nominal $5 fee annually.

The BCICA’s primary focus is on education. To that end, we host public panels and meetings on specific topics, where we garner feedback from both industry experts, and the general public. It is our hope to present the information gained in these sessions in a comprehensive and clear manner, with the goal of informing the public and policy makers about this vibrant, sophisticated business economy.


Membership is open to anyone for the nominal membership fee of $5 per year. Please attend one of our public sessions to join.
