Green. Blue. Renew.
Our pesticide-free aquaponic growing platform will result in a smaller carbon footprint than those of traditional soil-based or hydroponic methods. We’re engaged in ongoing research and development to further reduce our energy use. In addition to environmental benefits, these methods will result in a purer, safer product for our clients.
Aqualitas is a unique company and through our leadership, production methods, quality products, and customer service, we’re passionately committed to ensuring that what makes us unique is what will benefit you, our clients. In addition to bringing safe, consistent cannabis to market, we’ll continue to engage in research and development, explore advocacy issues, inquire about expanded medical uses, employ compassionate pricing, and provide vital support and education for pharmacists and other healthcare professionals.
We’re proud of what distinguishes our company. Aqualitas will be one of the very few licensed producers to have been founded by a woman. Our founder and CEO, Myrna Gillis, has been an advocate for persons with disabilities and a leader in the legal profession for more than 25 years. Aqualitas is a Cornerstone Ally Member of Women Grow, an organization that supports female entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry. In her work providing leadership and advocacy in the Canadian cannabis industry, Myrna also pays tribute to all those people who have promoted access to medical cannabis in Canada, including many compassionate female pioneers who have taken the lead in cultivation, production, distribution and frontline care.
Aqualitas recognizes that women are disproportionately more likely to be diagnosed with chronic illnesses, to try alternative health therapies, and to be primary caregivers. We’re committed to researching ways that cannabis can be used to promote women’s health.
A Global Industry with a Maritime Home
Aqualitas is working to bring a new industry to rural Nova Scotia. While our products will be available to any authorized client anywhere in Canada, we’re excited about being one of a small number of producers in Atlantic Canada, offering Atlantic Canadians same-day access to a regionally grown, pesticide-free, all-natural cannabis product. Our management and scientific teams and our medical and patient advisory board are made up of people with strong connections to Nova Scotia and the Atlantic provinces, with a commitment to the success of business in our backyard. We're investing in our community and are supporting the local economy, hiring local full- and part-time employees and contractors.
Support for our Veterans
We are pleased to support programs that advocate for veterans. Recognizing that relief from injuries sustained while serving our country is often not achieved with conventional pharmaceuticals, we will help veterans access cannabis for medical purposes and navigate the changing Veterans Affairs Canada reimbursement program. A Canadian Armed Forces veteran is a member of our medical and patient advisory board and will continue to assist our teams to better understand and support the needs of veterans.
