With cannabis legalization weeks away in Canada, we are surely going to see a lot of new projects, products, and even facilities that cater to tourism.
In fact, one such facility is already being envisioned.
MYM Nutraceuticals announced Wednesday it has engaged well-known tourism and recreational expert, Sylvain Audet, to develop the concept of the “CannaCentre” in Weedon, QC.
The CannaCentre, to be associated with the company’s 1.5 million square foot medical cannabis greenhouse complex currently under construction, will host a “research centre, a training facility, an auditorium for cultural and scientific activities, a hotel, a restaurant, a medical cannabis interpretation centre and a medical clinic.”
Audet will work in close collaboration with the Sherbrooke Historical Society to develop the concept of the “medical cannabis museum” as part of the CannaCentre.
“The addition of Sylvain Audet provides the project with the expertise for a harmonious tourism and cultural development,” said Rob Gietl, CEO of MYM. “Mr. Audet’s expertise will allow the region to offer a world-class tourism product that is in line with the needs of the local population.”
Audet’s experience includes positions with high-end hotels and resorts, regional organizations promoting tourism and ski resorts. He has more than twenty-five years-experience as a recreational tourism consultant for several companies and regional organizations in Canada.
MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. describes itself as “an innovative company focused on acquiring Health Canada licenses to produce and sell high-end medicinal cannabis supplements and topical products.”
MYM is a shareholder in two production projects in Quebec that are anticipated to have over 1.5 million square feet of production space, and is also a shareholder in two additional cannabis production projects in Australia and Colombia.
