Ottawa (Ontario), April 16, 2018 – LIVEWELL FOODS CANADA Inc. (“LW“, “LiveWell Foods” or the “Company“) welcomes the Honourable Lawrence Cannon to its Board of Directors.
Significant support for an ambitious project
After receiving support from the City of Ottawa last February for the conversion of its existing 540,000 square foot greenhouse in the Metcalfe area into a cannabis production site, the company, continues solidifying the foundation of its development to become one of the largest greenhouse facilities for cannabis production in the world.
