Nanaimo City Council is green-lighting a big expansion for medical marijuana producer Tilray.
They’ve approved a re-zoning for properties beside Tilray’s existing facility at 1100 Maughan Road.
The City says Tilray is now positioned to increase their operations in Nanaimo significantly.
Once complete, Tilray’s second facility is expected to create 275 new jobs.
Tilray Chief Operating Officer Christian Groh says, “Tilray is proud to be a rapidly growing business and large employer in Nanaimo, and we sincerely appreciate the overwhelming support we have received from the Nanaimo community to-date. We are looking forward to continuing to invest and create jobs in the community pending necessary regulatory approvals for our production site”.
