CALGARY – Alberta’s cannabis sector has created an industry group called the Alberta Cannabis Council (ACC).

The ACC says it will serve to elevate the awareness of the Alberta cannabis sector and advocate on behalf of their members across Alberta, educating consumers and working with regulators to reduce the illicit market.

The ACC is governed by founding members who make up the board of directors:

  • Nathan Mison – Fire & Flower, Board Chair
  • Ashley Newman – Queen of Bud, Vice Chair
  • Gerald Proctor – Sundial Growers Inc., Board Treasurer
  • Jeff Mooij – 420 Investments, Board Secretary
  • Jesse Beaudry – Candre Cannabis Inc.

“The unified voice we have created with ACC will help us educate in a responsible, safe and transparent manner as well as advocate with stakeholders and government on key issues,” said Michelle Russell, executive director, in a prepared statement. “We are very proud of the team we have built, with representatives from all over the cannabis sector, including retailers and LPs.”


The ACC says it will provide members access to governments and industry influencers and also offer a professional support system for smaller companies.
