Sundial Growers Inc. has secured a cannabis supply agreement with the BC Liquor Distribution Branch. The partnership advances Sundial’s strategy of providing all Canadians access to its premium adult-use and medical products.
“B.C. has a proud history and culture of producing world-famous cannabis and we look to continue the tradition by providing the province with craft, premium quality cannabis that will live up to the high standards set by its forebears,” said Andrew Stordeur, Chief Commercial Officer at Sundial. “This is an exciting time at Sundial as we continue to scale with pace while focusing on delivering uninterrupted supply to our current customers.”
The additional cultivation space that was recently announced at Sundial’s flagship facility in Olds, Alberta will allow Sundial to expand distribution to all of the Western provinces along with Ontario. Supply agreements with the provincial boards of Alberta and Ontario are already in place, and approval to sell in Saskatchewan was recently received from the SGLA.
Sundial crafts premium quality, small-batch cannabis with its best-in-class facilities. Sundial differentiates itself from other licensed producers by growing “craft-at-scale” cannabis using purpose-built modular systems and award-winning genetics.

Many LPs operate clinics and dispensaries that collect personal and confidential medical information from patients. Cannabis players that chose to operate in the recreational space still collect personal information from customers and need to ensure that they hold themselves to the same standards as hospitals and medical clinics when it comes to information protection. A 2017 report from the Ponemon Institute states that healthcare organizations that had a data breach experienced a 6.25% decline in their stocks, lost more than 4% of patients and it took over three months to recover from the financial damages of the breach. It is expected that this same decline in stocks and customers can be seen in both the recreational and medicinal cannabis markets if a breach occurs.
