Tilray is ramping up production at its Enniskillen Township greenhouse as it prepares to supply Ontarians with recreational marijuana come October.
The Ontario Cannabis Store which will sell cannabis online starting Oct. 17, has signed supply agreements with 26 licensed producers – including Tilray.
“These agreements are a significant milestone that signals our readiness for the legalization of cannabis in Ontario,” says Patrick Ford, president and chief operating officer of OCS. “These agreements will allow us to safely and securely provide a broad variety of cannabis products.”
Tilray was among the suppliers approved by Health Canada bidding for an opportunity to supply the recreational market. Adine Fabiani-Carter, Tilray’s chief marketing officer, says the High Park facility in Enniskillen is ramping up production in the 13-acre greenhouse in production. “Our Ontario facility is going to be for the recreational market and Naniamo will supply the medical and specialty market,” she says.
As High Park Farms was named a supplier, Lambton College was hosting a job fair to keep pace with the growth, interviewing for 60 positions in the facility.
