A Kitchener cannabis company is hoping to hire more than 400 new workers.
James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation, or JWC, is holding a career fair on Tuesday just down the road from their Manitou Drive facility.
“We will eventually employ 400 in total at our flagship facilty,” said Nathan Woodworth of JWC. “Today [for our job fair] we are only looking to hire 15 people.”
The Region of Waterloo, which is co-hosting the event, says JWC is looking to fill manual labour positions.
The cannabis producer recently received approval from Health Canada to double its production.
