IGC provides professional licensing consulting services to new cannabis micro producers and micro processors across Canada. Our team of experts will work with you throughout the process to assess your project's potential, revenue optimization, choice of production model, security (cameras, monitoring, licensing procedures, security action plans), plant location (municipal and zoning bylaws, budgeting and facility planning) and cannabis production best practices (reporting, standard operating procedures).

We are associated with a clone producer who can provide you with the best genetics on the market. We can guide you in the choice of your cultivars which will make your reputation.

We also offer consulting services for solventless extraction services, training, R&D for the development of a solventless product line, laboratory set-up, rosin presses and all the SOPs.

Our approach is unique.
You can choose an à la carte approach or opt for a complete service plan covering all steps.

Micro Cultivation License overview

A Micro Cultivation License allows you to grow cannabis on a small scale (200 m2 / 2152 sqft canopy or less).

Micro Growing is generally more profitable: batches can be produced at significantly lower costs than large-scale production. Micro Growing can be adapted to almost any space, is more cost effective to implement, and requires minimal human resources as batches are smaller size and can be managed by a couple employees. This allows for a better quality product as more care and attention is afforded to each plant and crop.

When submitting your cannabis license application to Health Canada, you must include a detailed list and description of your Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). These SOPs are then integrated into the required GPP and Organizational Security Plans.

Gaps in your application will result in Health Canada issuing an Intent to Refuse (ITR) which further delays the progression of your application by up to 30 days. Our SOPs and application package have been developed and vetted by actual licensed producers. They have gone through several application reviews without issue, multiple Health Canada inspections too, and they are currently supporting licensed cannabis operations throughout Canada.

Safe to say that our SOPs have been put to the real world test and proven to meet all the applicable requirements, minimize ITRs (Intent To Refuse) and avoid further delays. So you can focus on what you need to be doing to get your site ready for operation.

You can also have peace of mind in knowing that once licensed you have all the necessary components to stay compliant with documentation and record keeping requirements.
