Ontario Cannabis Store unable to make deliveries after partner faces cyberattack


Published August 9, 2022 at 9:04 am

TORONTO — The Ontario Cannabis Store says a cyberattack faced by one of its logistics partners has left the provincial pot distributor unable to deliver orders to marijuana shops and customers.

To protect customers, the OCS says the parent company of its third-party distribution centre, Domain Logistics, has shut down its operations until a full forensic investigation can be completed.

The OCS says there is no indication that its systems were targeted or its customers’ information was compromised during the Aug. 5 attack.

The OCS adds it is working closely with Domain Logistics and third-party cybersecurity experts to conduct an investigation.

That’s expected to be completed within the coming days.

Domain Logistics did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
