Growing demand for cannabis has one local company looking to add up to 20 people to its team. Carmel Pharms will be holding a job fair June 17, from 3 to 4:30 p.m., at its Oro-Medonte operation at 837 Line 7 S.
“With increasing sales in Ontario and demand for craft product, we have purchase orders that we need to meet,” said Carmel co-founder Roey Fishman. “We’re looking for people, especially local people, to help us achieve those goals.”
