A 65,000 square foot state of the art marijuana growing facility is to be built in Pemberton.

Whistler Medical Marijuana announced today the development of the new satellite facility, following Health Canada approval. Construction will begin in April to expand the company’s existing footprint and increase production capacity.

In a statement the company says the development of the new site follows a surge in demand for organic medication among Canadians.The company says Pemberton was chosen for the new location as it offers the land and zoning required to expand, as well as the infrastructure to sustain the operation.

Construction is due to be completed in the spring of 2018, and once operational will generate 25 full time jobs and 6,500kg of organic cannabis per year.
