They’re still waiting on their license from Health Canada to grow medical marijuana, but Tilray wants to be ready.
They’re going to get started on hiring staff for their Nanaimo operation with a job fair this weekend.
Philippe Lucas is Tilray’s VP of Patient Research and Services.
Lucas says they want to be a positive force in the local economy, and he expects most job seekers will be from the Nanaimo area.
The company expects the go-ahead from Health Canada within the weeks, and when it comes they’ll start moving plants into the Maughn Road operation.
