The BC Craft Farmers Co-Op (BCCFC) will host the 2024 BC Craft Farmer’s Cannabis Summit from April 19-21 in Prince George. BC craft cannabis farmers, processors, independent retailers, Indigenous organizations, government officials and other sector leaders are invited to participate in a three-day Summit that will put a spotlight on one of B.C.’s best-kept cannabis secrets.

“Northern British Columbia is home to some of Canada’s and the world’s most skilled, experienced and passionate craft cannabis farmers,” said BCCFC President Tara Kirkpatrick.  “Over the past two years, the BCCFC has been fortunate to experience the incredible hospitality of the Westbank First Nation and the City of Kelowna for two sold out B.C. Cannabis Summits. This year, we are eager to embark on a new journey with a dedicated team in Prince George, highlighting the talents and commitment of Northern BC craft cannabis farmers, processors, and independent retailers.”

To support the Summit, BCCFC is establishing a planning committee which include representatives from the Prince George Community Futures Development office, Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Prince George, downtown businesses, Prince George Observatory, licensed cannabis retailers, farmers and hemp producers. BCCFC will also invite City of Prince George officials and First Nations representatives to participate.

“In addition to showcasing the diversity of BC’s cannabis sector, the 2024 BC Craft Farmer’s Cannabis Summit will benefit the local economy and shine a light on how medical cannabis access can safely treat chronic disease and opioid addiction,” said BCCFC Vice President Richard Willems. “We look forward to rolling out the green carpet and safely celebrating cannabis together in Prince George on 4/20/24.”

“This year’s BC Craft Farmer’s Cannabis Summit will also be an opportunity to strengthen our commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, fight for improvements to the federal Cannabis Act, and encourage the BC government to start treating craft cannabis farmers, independent retailers, and BC municipalities more fairly,” said BCCFC Director Jonathan Fernandes. “Managed properly, BC’s craft and indigenous cannabis industry can mitigate downturns in traditional sectors like forestry by creating thousands of legal jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity in all regions of the province.” 

BCCFC was established in 2020 under the BC Cooperatives Act to help BC’s craft cannabis farmers transition to the legal marketplace, protect BC’s global cannabis brand, and make sure medical and recreation consumers have access to the best quality cannabis in the world.
