Justin Trudeau recently announced that recreational cannabis will finally be legal across Canada as of October 17th. This is a very exciting time for Canada as advocates and businesses around the world are watching. With just over three months to go until the official legalization date, we’ve created a timeline of cannabis legalization in Canada:
Industry leading licensed cannabis producer and GGS client, CannTrust Holdings Inc. held the official grand opening for their Perpetual Harvest Facility earlier in the week. The goal of the facility is to have a harvest every day and their team is working quickly to make that happen.
The facility is located in the Niagara Region, Ontario, and currently sits at 450,000 square feet of cultivation space and outputs roughly 50,000 kilograms annually of dried product.
Leigh Coulter, president of GGS Structures, recently met with BNN Bloomberg at CannTrust’s Vaughan facility for a look at the inner workings of a commercial cannabis growing facility and to discuss what’s involved in being a top supplier for the legal marijuana industry.
Learn why cultivators are seeing the benefits of designing the ideal greenhouse facility to produce top quality and high yield crops. There are many considerations to be made and there is no “one size fits all” solution.
Women have always played an important role in horticulture as business leaders, breeders, growers, marketers, researchers and owners of commercial businesses. As the industry continues to evolve, more and more women are being recruited into the workforce and into leadership roles.
As a top manufacturer of commercial greenhouse facilities, structures and equipment, GGS is proud to use the talents and fresh perspectives of our female employees.
GGS is 75% women owned, and 50% of our senior management are women.
