Statement regarding Tilray closing its facility and offices in Nanaimo

“On behalf of Council, I am very disappointed to have learned that Tilray will be closing its cultivation facility and offices in Nanaimo. While it is my understanding that Tilray plans to close its facility in phases, by the Spring of 2022, we are mindful that employees and others will be seriously impacted by the closures. However, I am confident that given our demand for industrial lands, Nanaimo will welcome a new and significant employer soon."

Leonard Krog, Mayor, City of Nanaimo
