(Edmonton) Aurora Cannabis on Wednesday announced the closure of an outdoor cannabis grow site in British Columbia.
The Edmonton-based grower says he no longer needs the Westwold property, which goes by the name Aurora Valley, as it recently acquired Thrive Cannabis, which has facilities for indoor and outdoor culture.
In an email to La Presse Canadienne, Aurora spokeswoman Kate Hillyar said fewer than 10 employees would be affected by the site’s closure.
She said staff were made aware of the decision ahead of the spring planting season and offered transition opportunities where possible.
Ms. Hillyar added that Aurora Valley was primarily an exploratory outdoor grow site, while the Thrive outdoor site has been marketing produce for years.
Aurora announced in March that it was acquiring Thrive’s parent company, TerraFarma, in a cash and stock deal valued at $38 million.
