"We will be allocating a significant amount of inventory to the Ontario market, considering retail demand and our goal to become the top choice for consumers in Ontario—and right across Canada," Hexo CEO and co-founder Sebastien St-Louis said in the press release.

The Quebec-based company now has exposure to Ontario where Statistics Canada estimates 15.4% of people used cannabis in the last quarter of 2018, the company said.
