AN INDUSTRY IS BORN
In 2013, Canada enacted the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), becoming the first country in the world to support the development of a large-scale, commercial medical cannabis industry. These groundbreaking regulations established the framework to provide patients and physicians access to pure and predictable medicine, and advance scientific understanding of medical cannabis through research and development. In 2014, Health Canada selected Tilray to be one of the first companies to operate under the MMPR regulations. Since then, Tilray has been at the forefront of providing safe, consistent and reliable therapy to patients.

ECONOMIC & COMMUNITY IMPACT ON NANAIMO, BC
As we aspire to build the world’s most trusted and admired medical cannabis company, Tilray is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and positive contributor to the communities where we do business. Our Canadian business provides a case study detailing the meaningful impact our operations have on local communities. In less than a year, we’ve invested nearly $33 million. Strong demand has led Tilray to pursue a second production facility that, if approved by Health Canada, would increase investment by more than $64.7M. This investment would lead to $17.6M in additional salaries and wages.
