Courtenay, BC—Small BC cannabis producers, processors and retailers are invited to participate in a provincial consultation process to help shape a BC small cannabis producers and processors co-operative to ensure authentic BC cannabis can be available to consumers across the province, Canada and around the world.

The community consultation is being co-hosted by the Cascadia Agricultural Co-Op Association and Grow Tech Labs in Courtenay on Sunday February 24 at the Native Sons Hall in the Lodge Room, 360 Cliff Avenue, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. This is the third in a series of community meetings with local co-hosts, like Cascadia, that will take place across the province over the coming weeks.

Joel Podersky, Co-founder and President of the Cascadia Agricultural Co-operative Association said, “"This is an invitation to existing independent participants to come together to help create and enhance community-based access points to legal markets in the cannabis sector, and support networks to help the independent cannabis community in BC continue to thrive.”

The purpose of the province-wide consultation is to provide potential members with background information about what co-ops are, how the business model can be applied to the craft cannabis sector in BC and the potential benefits for members. Feedback from the meetings will inform the mission, vision, governance structure and activities of a BC small cannabis producers and processors co-operative.
