Maple Leaf has leased 37+ acres of land with the option to purchase from Woodmere Nurseries Ltd. The company is currently constructing a 27,200 sq. ft. (the “Facility”) cannabis production facility in Telkwa, B.C. (the expansion capacity is “Up To 500,000 Sq Ft.”) Phase I production is projected upto 3,500 kgs of dried marijuana or equivalent. The facility is anticipated to produce pesticide-free, top-quality cannabis and cannabis oil utilizing biodynamic technology.
Maple Leaf has contracted Calgary-based, MMP Management Inc., for project management, procurement, & engineering and construction of the Facility.
Rethinking Construction has provided RC’s Canna-Shield™ system, which offers a factory manufactured panelized building solution using Canadian Construction Materials Centre (“CCMC”) certified magnesium oxide (“MgO”) board. The Canna-Shield™ product offers fire, water, mold, impact, and insect resistance, ideal for the cannabis industry.
Using the factory manufactured panels, combined with the Rethinking system, construction times may be reduced by up to 80% as compared to traditional construction methodologies.
Maple Leaf is currently in “Active Review” status with the ACMPR. The anticipated completion of the facility is by the end of 2019.
