First cannabis store opens in Pembroke, second in Renfrew County


The second legal cannabis store in Renfrew County and the first in the City of Pembroke has officially opened its doors. 

The Ottawa Valley Cannabis Store on Pembroke Street East opened to the public last Friday after it received approval from the province. 

The business said in a statement it looks forward to holding a grand opening event at some point in the future. 

It's the second store to open in Renfrew County after BayBud Cannabis opened its first store in Barry's Bay in September. 

Five more shops are awaiting approval for various locations within Renfrew County, including two more in Pembroke.
