When Niagara College kicks off its Commercial Cannabis Production Program for graduate students this fall, Canopy Growth will be offering co-op placements at their Tweed Farms growing facility in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The Co-op and internship placements will be available to students in the Commeical Cannabis Production, Horticulture Technician, and Greenhouse Technician and Business programs.
