The Hamilton City Council has voted to approve The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings' settlement offer, to allow the company to operate its cannabis greenhouse in Ancaster, Ontario upon confirmation of the settlement by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal at a meeting scheduled for April 25, 2019.
"This is tremendous news for our Company and for the city of Hamilton," said Brian Athaide, CEO and Director of TGOD. "We are a global company that has its roots in Hamilton, and we are looking forward to expanding our production right here in our hometown."
According to the company, once complete, the combined facilities in Ancaster, Ontario will be capable of growing 17,500 kgs of organic cannabis annually. "The newly constructed, LEED-designed purpose-built greenhouse is expected to begin growing by June and employ up to 85 people."
"We are committed to this city and we look forward to working with Council on achieving its goal of creating a Life Sciences Centre of Excellence in Hamilton. It has been a challenging year," Athaide said, "but throughout it all, we have been encouraged by the hundreds of expressions of support from our neighbours, local businesses and the community."
