Marijuana Facility Coming To West Grey = Jobs

WEST GREY – There might be a medicinal marijuana facility on the horizon for West Grey.

The municipality is partnering up with CannAssist Group Inc – also known as CGI – to explore the idea.

Under the agreement; West Grey will receive royalties from CGI and will provide land for the 250,000 square foot production facility.

Mayor Kevin Eccles says this is great news for the township.

“Entering into a partnership with CannAssist is a significant step forward in job creation, revenue generation and community building – all of which are directly connected to West Grey’s Action Plan and the goals of council and the community. Being one of only five municipalities chosen by CannAssist speaks to how attractive it is to do business in West Grey.”

The facility would bring at least 120 jobs to the area.
