We are fifth-generation Prince Edward Island farmers (since 1841) who have been growing and selling medical cannabis since 2016.
Yes, we are proud to be one of Canada’s licensed producers of medicinal and recreational cannabis. Canada’s Island Garden, FIGR’s P.E.I. cannabis producer, received a cultivation licence in June 2016, becoming the 32nd Licensed Producer (LP) in Canada.
Our pre-sales inspection took place January 2017. Our sales licence was approved on February 7, 2017, making us fully approved for sales.
What sets us apart is our deep roots in agriculture, unique processes, and proven track record. This has served us well in the medical cannabis space and will allow us to succeed in the recreational space come October 17, 2018.
FIGR, through its subsidiary, Canada’s Island Garden, is the only LP located on Prince Edward Island and, as of October 17, we will produce the only locally grown cannabis available for legal recreational purchase in P.E.I. We are proudly Atlantic Canadian and will provide cannabis for purchase in Nova Scotia after October 17, as well.
We have two Canadian production facilities. Canada’s Island Garden in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and Goldleaf Pharm in Simcoe, Ontario.
Our initial sales licence was granted in 2016 when we began growing and selling medical cannabis. Our sales licence was granted in 2017 and our cultivation licence in 2016. We have been growing cannabis since 2016. In 2018, our recreational brand, FIGR, was born and on October 17 our adult-use products will become available for legal recreational sale.
While FIGR will be our recreational brand, our medical patients will continue to receive products under our legacy brand “Canada’s Island Garden.”
Yes, we are licensed to sell cannabis oil. We use a supercritical CO2 extraction system. Our extraction licence was received December 21, 2017. Our cannabis oil sales licence was approved on August 31, 2018.
We chose the name FIGR for our new corporate identity and recreational cannabis brand as a nod to the popular P.E.I. saying “Go Figure” and a reflection of our local roots.
We take pride in being small, having big ideas, and delivering on our reputation for producing high-quality strains. FIGR stands for Farming Wisdom + Scientific Rigour.
Yes, FIGR is proud to be a part of our local community and currently employs 42 people, all of whom live on the Island. Our expansion will increase our team to approximately 200, with a focus on building local talent.
