Aurora Cannabis (TSXV:ACB; OTCQX:ACBFF) announced it will host an Australian delegation, including the Minister of Agriculture Jaala Pulford.
As quoted in the press release:

The purpose of the visit to Canada, during which the delegation will also meet with federal officials in Ottawa, is knowledge transfer with regard to the regulations governing the medical cannabis sector, as well as more detailed insight into best practices relating to cultivation, production and distribution. The visit will provide insights into the elements that have made the Canadian system, which currently serves approximately 200,000 patients, so successful.
The Australian delegation will spend a full day with Aurora executives, visiting both the highly automated 800,000 square foot Aurora Sky facility now under construction at Edmonton International Airport and the Company’s existing 55,000 square foot production facility in Mountain View County, Alberta, which was Canada’s first purpose-built indoor cannabis growing facility.
Also meeting with the Minister today will be the Honourable Shaye Anderson, Alberta’s Minister of Municipal Affairs and MLA for LeducBeaumont, as well as executives representing two of Aurora’s strategic partners: Peter Crock, CEO of Cann Group Limited, Australia’s first licensed cannabis company, in which Aurora holds a 19.9% stake; and Denis Taschuk, CEO of Radient Technologies Inc., an Edmonton concentrates company, in which Aurora holds a 17% stake.
