The Confirmation of Readiness submission to Health Canada is a significant milestone for the Company and its shareholders.

The Company was advised by the Office of Medical Cannabis that Health Canada had issued an announcement on January 25, 2018, regarding two targeted changes to physical security requirements under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).

- areas where cannabis plants are cultivated, propagated, harvested or trimmed and to areas where cannabis seeds are present or stored, and
- the vault and storage areas.
