A team of Albertan entrepreneurs are excited to soon become the newest entrants to the Canadian cannabis industry. Devon Davidson and Adam Bourbonnais are long time residents of Calgary. They have been working tirelessly to get Canalief, Alberta’s Premium Craft Cannabis Grower, off the ground. After facing many initial challenges, the team is making massive headways.
Canalief has been granted a development permit in a town in Southern Alberta for their proposed 67,000 sq. ft. facility. The construction will create 30-40 temporary jobs and after completion, employ approximately 25 full time staff members. Members of the town council are excited to welcome Canalief, and feel the facility can help boost the local economy. “I am very proud to be at the forefront of this exciting new industry. Now that prohibition is over, I look forward to being able to provide a safer alternative to harmful drugs and helping as many people as we can along the way.” says Devon Davidson, President and Co-founder of Canalief.
The team has also submitted their application for a standard cultivation license with Health Canada and has passed the intake and screening stage, and has moved to the review queue. The team is actively fundraising to move forward with the completion of the facility. They are aiming to break ground on the new facility in the summer of 2019.
