NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR
The Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment has released Oceanic Releaf Inc. from the environmental assessment process.
According to a Sept. 14 bulletin issued by the department, the company, which is proposing to develop and operate a 60,000 square foot cannabis production facility at the old High Liner Foods plant in Burin, must follow three conditions.
Oceanic Releaf has to submit information regarding qualifications, certifications and other requirements associated with all occupations in the operations phase of the project to the Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour.
As well, a women’s employment plan for the project must also be approved by the Women’s Policy Office prior to construction.
Finally, the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment’s pollution prevention division must approve a comprehensive waste management plan before cannabis is introduced to the facility.
Oceanic Releaf is proposing to renovate the interior of the building to include two grow/flowering rooms, production rooms, offices, a warehouse and a packaging area.
