Health Canada Approves IHMML’s Atholville Facility Marijuana Cultivation Facility

08/25/2017
International Herbs and Medical Marijuana Ltd reports Health Canada issued a license to cultivate at its facility in Atholville, New Brunswick, Canada.

Combined with an earlier license for its Delta, British Columbia facility, the company now has a coast to coast presence, company officials said.

International Herbs and Medical Marijuana’s Atholville facility alone is 400,000 square feet. The Delta operation is the only licensed facility in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. The company is also developing a 275,000 square foot operation in Stellarton, Nova Scotia. As a result, the privately held company is well positioned to meet the ederal Government’s July 2018 goal of servicing the regulated market.

“This is a significant milestone and the result of hard work on the part of our staff and contractors” stated CEO Kevin Coft. “This would not have been possible without the assistance of our MP, Rene Arsenault, our MLA’s Donald Arsenault and Giles LePage and the financial investment of both Opportunity New Brunswick and the Listiguji Government.”

The company expects to commence production within a few weeks. “We expect to hire approximately 40 employees over the next few months. To date we have invested approximately $15 million in the local economy. Concurrent with our cultivation activity, we plan to continue to expand our facility to create additional production capacity. Once fully built, we expect to create approximately 400 local jobs.”
