Cannabis Policy Set at Halifax Stanfield

Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) has set cannabis consumption rules at Halifax Stanfield. Cannabis use is prohibited on airport property. This includes the areas outside the terminal building designated for tobacco smoking.

As of October 17, travellers are permitted to transport within Canada up to 30 grams of cannabis in their carry-on or checked baggage. It will continue to remain illegal to take cannabis across Canada’s national borders, whether you are entering or leaving Canada. This remains a serious criminal offence subject to arrest and prosecution.

Current regulations around travelling while impaired do not change. Airline employees have the authority to refuse service to a passenger they believe to be impaired.
