According to the report this upwards trend of hires can be credited due to LPs need to scale up in order to meet the demand caused by the legalization of the recreational market. This business trend has caused licenses to go up and demand for product to increase as well.
“As an industry, we’re not only in a growth phase, but we’re also scaling up for legalization in the middle of next year,” Cam Battley, executive vice president of Aurora Cannabis (TSX:ACB) told Marijuana Business Daily.
Battley said he expect employment to increase “extremely rapidly” within the next two years.

This report came together in part thanks to a survey conducted by staffing firm Cannabis At Work showed the average salaries for different roles in prominent companies. The survey noted the five highest paying roles, on average are: marketing manager, senior accountant, quality assurance person, human resources manager and cultivation manager.
Alison McMahon, Cannabis At Work’s founder and chief executive officer told Marijuana Business Daily she expect the industry as a whole to add nearly 150,000 “over the next couple of years.”
“This is a very exciting industry right now and perhaps the fastest growing in Canada. It’s attracting the curious, the talented and the bold.”
