MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. announced that CannaCanada Inc. has broken ground on the 1.5 million sq. ft. cannabis production facility located in Weedon, Quebec.
“We are extremely excited to announce that our partners, CannaCanada Inc., have broken ground on the flagship production facility in the town of Weedon, Quebec,” said Rob Gietl, CEO of MYM. “CannaCanada Inc. recently received confirmation from Health Canada via email inquiring about the progress of construction and when we might estimate completion. With the spring thaw now complete, our team is in full swing making arrangements to be construction ready in time for the delivery of the first round of greenhouses. The initial delivery of greenhouses is scheduled to be installed by the end of Q3, at which point we will advance to the video submission and cultivation stage.”
In addition to obtaining the approved permits, architectural drawings, and security plans, the Company would like to provide the following recent updates regarding the project:
- LEEDS Certification has been attained. Experts are now working on what level of certification can be achieved.
- The external environmental analysis of the site has been completed. The geographic location of the project and its surrounding areas has been deemed to be secure. The Company has concluded there is minimal potential of negative impact from environmental issues such as flooding and wildfire.
- Analysis from Hydro Quebec is now underway. Officials have begun assessment of the site with the study scheduled to be completed by June 15.
The Weedon facility is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019. Complete build out will see greenhouse production space of 1.5 million sq ft, capable of producing an estimated 150,000 kgs of cannabis.
