CAN: Cannabis production beginning outside Peace River

Northern Sunrise County (NSC) has completed an application for a cannabis production facility over four kilometers outside of Peace River. This development permit application was well received by the council.

The building is large enough to deal with odor concerns. Wind patterns also usually go from north to west, further limiting odor impact. Engineered ventilation in the building has been approved by Health Canada. While cannabis will be grown on-site, it will not be processed. 

“The cannabis production facility will be located in an existing building. The proposed development has obtained a license from Health Canada for ‘Micro-cultivation’ of cannabis. Micro-cultivation operations are limited to a total growing area of less than 200 square meters, and only one micro cannabis operation is permitted at a specific address,” says Alisha Mody, Manager of Planning and Development. 

“We have no direct concerns with the proposed development, provided that the development complies with the Health Canada approvals, and in particular, that the ventilation and filtration system be installed and maintained throughout the operation of the facility,” says the council document.
