Patient Onboarding Continues Rapid Pace

Upgrade and Expansion of Mother Room
The Company’s production facility has just completed a substantial upgrade and expansion of its mother room, with the addition of full-spectrum LED + HID lighting and an automated irrigation system that can deliver cultivar-specific nutrient formulas. The improvements effectively double the room’s plant capacity and further strengthen Aurora’s commitment to full lifecycle plant health and quality.
I am delighted with our operational performance, our proprietary technologies, and our ability to execute our goals with discipline and vision. The Aurora Standard continues to elevate the way patient needs are being met across Canada.
