On May 13, 2021, the Company announced that, as part of its plan to combine operations with Aphria and enhance operational efficiencies following the consummation of the Arrangement, it will be closing its High Park Farms facility in Petrolia, Ontario. The closure is expected to be completed by September 2021. There are approximately 200 employees at High Park Farms in Petrolia, and the Company is encouraging employees to seek opportunities at its nearby cultivation and manufacturing operations in Leamington and London, Ontario, where the Company expects to concentrate local cultivation and local manufacturing, respectively.
