Saskatchewan – Retail & E-commerce
GTEC has completed and submitted to the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) all the required documentation for a retail license.

The Company anticipates both the warehouse and e-commerce platform to be operational in Q4 2018.
Manitoba Retail – 7 Locations
GTEC had submitted a proposal to a Request For Proposal (RFP) issued by the Province of Manitoba for 7 retail locations. On September 28, 2018, GTEC was notified by the Procurement Services Branch that it had passed the initial screening and has been included to the pre-qualified list for the opportunity to enter a lottery for a cannabis retail store licence.

British Columbia Retail
GTEC is actively pursuing retail opportunities in the Greater Vancouver area and Thompson-Okanagan region. The company is seeking to establish a total of 8 retail locations in the province of British Columbia.
“Canada has established itself as the world leader in Cannabis legislation, and with legalization less than a week away we are extremely pleased with the rapid execution of our retail teams,” said Norton Singhavon, Chairman and CEO of GTEC. “Once the doors to our first retail locations open in the coming weeks and months, we will have successfully executed our vision of becoming one of the few companies that have achieved full vertical integration, controlling the entire value-chain from seed to shelf. This methodical approach will allow us to deliver a quality end product to consumers while eliminating significant inefficiencies that exist in traditional supply chains.”
