“National Access Cannabis now has 9 new licences granted in Alberta since the lifting of the moratorium by the AGLC on May 30th,” said Mark Goliger, CEO of NAC. “With 34 licensed locations across Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, we continue have the largest footprint of retail cannabis stores in Canada1. We are confident in our ability to rapidly and successfully expand our retail stores across multiple jurisdictions and we continue to pursue expansion opportunities, particularly in British Columbia and Ontario.”
