CSE’s Barrington Miller recently sat down with Sherri Altshuler (Partner and Co-Chair, Capital Markets and Cannabis Groups at Aird & Berlis) and Glenn Fraser (National Leader, Cannabis Services and Food & Beverage Processing at MNP) to discuss their respective firm’s Passport to Canada Alliance at the upcoming MJBizCon in Las Vegas.
In this discussion, the “Alliance” discusses their “Passport to Canada’s Cannabis Sector” value proposition (1:29), Cannabis sector themes to expect at this year’s MJBizCon (4:01), and defining the traits of “Cannabis 2.0”.
Listen until the end to hear how international listing applicants are creating new opportunities in a slower domestic cannabis market.
The CSE proudly welcomed the Passport to Canada’s Cannabis Sector to open the market at the CSE Media Centre on November 20th, 2019.
The Passport to Canada’s Cannabis Sector is an alliance between Aird & Berlis, MNP, MGO, ELLO, and the CSE. The alliance will be joining over 35,000 cannabis industry professionals, investors, and entrepreneurs at MJBizCon in Las Vegas next month, where the future of the cannabis industry will be discussed and new innovations within the cannabis space will be showcased.
“This group – us and these service providers – is going to Vegas for MJBiz 2019. We’re going to go there and share our story about how we can serve the industry and continue to help grow the cannabis industry by bringing companies to Canada to raise capital and list publicly on our exchange,” said James Black, Vice President of Listings Development at the CSE.
“Aird & Berlis has always taken a cross-disciplinary approach to the cannabis sector. We’re a full service firm and that’s how we’re treating our clients in the sector. And it’s been really important as we continue to support them in various stages of growth and advancement,” remarked Sherri Altshuler, Partner at Aird & Berlis.
“MNP is a full service provider for accounting, tax, and advisory services. We do all of those services in the cannabis sector,” said Glenn Fraser, Partner and National Leader of Food & Beverage Processing at MNP. “I’m really excited to be a part of the alliance because I think we have some of the pre-eminent service providers in the industry partnering with us during the show. I think it’ll be a pretty exciting time this year,” he added.
Joining Altshuler and Fraser were other key members of the Passport to Canada’s Cannabis Sector alliance.
