Red River College held its first job fair catered specifically to those interested in joining the cannabis industry after its first cannabis-centred course, cannabis 101, exceeded enrolment expectations.

Three cannabis retailers, including Garden Variety, were present at Monday’s job fair offering information and job applications. Garden Variety is hiring about 60 positions in Winnipeg for new stores set to open in the coming months.

As part of the school’s indigenous education strategy, the college wants to ensure that the workforce is there to support that, said Rebecca Chartrand, executive director of Indigenous strategy at Red River College.

“In some ways, this is the new frontier. This is a new industry, and we want to ensure that we have equal participation or opportunity within that industry.”
