Niagara College’s Niagara-on-the-Lake campus will see a cash infusion of $641,800 over a two-year period for research and development “to address challenges and continue advancement in the cannabis industry” aimed at their Commercial Cannabis Production program.

The grant was one of three that the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) earmarked for the college.

The college said, “This (grant) will provide research support in cultivation, as well as business and marketing, and will provide new applied research experiences for students within the College’s schools of Environment and Horticulture, and Business and Management.”

Kimberley Cathline, Research Program Manager of the College’s Agriculture & Environmental Technologies Innovation Centre (AETIC), added, “The funding for sustainable cannabis and hemp production will be instrumental in allowing our AETIC and Business and Commercialization Services (BCS) teams to fully operationalize and support industry needs through the increased ability to execute more research projects.”
