VAUGHAN, Ont. — An Ontario cannabis producer is laying off about 180 people.
The layoffs come after CannTrust Holdings ran into repeated regulatory problems with both its product and how it was produced.
Ontario’s government cannabis retailer has returned almost three million dollars worth of cannabis and the company is being investigated by Health Canada for growing the crop in unlicenced rooms.
The company says it is moving to address those issues.
The layoffs represent about 20 per cent of the company’s work force.
