License Application Guide


To find the GPS coordinates of your cultivation site (field) required by Health Canada please visit Earth Explorer, Google Earth or MAFRI AgriMaps.


Once you have obtained a license to cultivate it is a good idea to find an end market for your crop before planting. If you are interested in a grain production contract with PIHG please contact our office directly at 204.629.HEMP or [email protected] for all the details.
