What the continued CannTrust fallout means for the cannabis industry

Three weeks ago CannTrust acknowledged that it is under investigation by Health Canada, after federal regulators found the company had grown thousands of kilograms of cannabis in unlicensed rooms over a five-month period. The news sent shock waves through the industry, putting deals at risk, making financing more difficult and raising questions about whether Health Canada will respond by upping regulatory oversight.

Mr. Rendell and Mr. Taylor will be touching on key questions the ongoing investigation raises for the industry, such as:

  • The impact the CannTrust scandal is having on investor confidence.
  • How institutional investors are viewing the situation, and what that means for future financing across the industry;
  • How Health Canada may respond to the situation;
  • What lessons LPs can learn from the regulatory breach at CannTrust.

Mr. Rendell and Mr. Taylor will also take your questions. Please email your questions to us:
