Conveys thanks to Chairman and former CEO
Aleafia has conveyed thanks to Raf Souccar and Julian Fantino, who are also the founders of the company, for their exemplary services as Chairman and former Chief Executive Officer.

Issues an update on strategic growth initiatives
Geoffrey Benic, Chief Executive Officer of Aleafia, said the company has introduced two significant initiatives to cater to the needs of patients during coronavirus crisis. It focuses on sustainable, disciplined, and scalable growth going forward. The company invested significant amounts in virtual clinic services during the last two years. Aleafia has quickly completed 3,300 physician-led consultations using its virtual clinic services on the backdrop of the voluntary and temporary closure of its physical clinical locations on March 6, 2020. It ensured convenient, secure, and safe cannabinoid therapy to the patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Aleafia has expedited the introduction of contactless and safe last-mile home delivery service to deliver medicines directly to the doorstep of the patients. It expects to complete the home delivery of medical cannabis products to Emblem patients soon.
To safeguard its employees, Aleafia has canceled the non-essential travel of its employees. It has also barred the visits to its production facilities. The company has allowed work from home for employees who are not essential for production. It has enhanced the frequency of cleaning of the common areas at all of its facilities.
Begins operations at newly licensed Niagara Facility
Aleafia has begun the operations at Niagara Facility on April 6, 2020. The company expects to commence the outdoor cultivation season this year. Plans are in full swing to transport the cannabis plants to the Port Perry Facility in May 2020. It is also preparing to begin the operations of phase II expansion at its Paris Facility.
Aleafia has increased the production volumes at its Paris Facility to satisfy the growing demand for medical cannabis.
