Furfaro joined the corporation, known as the SQDC, about three years ago and became director of branch operations in November 2018.

The corporation’s board of directors is overseeing the recruitment process for a permanent CEO.

The Crown corporation is responsible for the distribution and sale of cannabis in Quebec.
