Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 19, 2021) - VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX: VIVO) (OTCQX: VVCIF) ("VIVO" or the "Company"), a leading provider of medical cannabis products and patient services, and holder of licenses under the Cannabis Act through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Canna Farms Limited ("Canna Farms") and ABcann Medicinals Inc., today provided an update on the recent flooding situation affecting Southern British Columbia.
VIVO's facility in Hope, BC is at the epicentre of the Trans Canada Highway's damage. Though the Hope facility is directly beside the Fraser River, it has not sustained any physical damage, and the safety of VIVO's employees and medical patients remains the highest priority. At this time, several of our team members, who have been displaced from their homes in Chilliwack and Yale, are sheltering with friends and family in Hope.
To support the local community and to ensure continued access for our patients' medical cannabis needs, VIVO has worked closely with Purolator's Mission Critical team to arrange a helicopter that flew from Vancouver's airport to the Canna Farms Hope facility yesterday, November 18th. On the inbound trip from Vancouver the helicopter brought food and supplies to the Hope community and to the Canna Farms facility, and on the outbound trip Canna Farms shipped hundreds of patients' medical orders to the Purolator and Canada Post depots in Vancouver. VIVO's Canna Farms team is working with local organizers in Hope, to provide needed support and supplies for those sheltering at the local high school and church.
