Red Market Brand Provides Indigenous Option to Canadian Cannabis Consumers, Grounded in Economic Reconciliation
TORONTO, June 21, 2021 / CNW / – First Nations thought leaders and advocates announce launch of Red Market Mark (“Red Market”, “RMB” or the “Company”), a new cannabis-related project owned and operated by Indigenous people and based on a mission of supporting Indigenous communities. Red Market will bring high quality cannabis products to the Canadian adult retail market with the primary purpose of making Indigenous owned cannabis brands available, in order to pursue economic reconciliation through Canada, and enrich First Nations communities from coast to coast through compliant cannabis sales.
Red Market Mark is founded and directed by Isadore’s Day, former regional chief of Ontario, Grand Chief of the Lake Huron region and Vice-President of the North Shore Tribal Council, and Christian sinclair, Onekanew (Chief) for the Cree Nation of Opaskwayak – leaders in the discussion surrounding Indigenous rights in the legal sale of cannabis in Canada.
“Our long-term goal is to establish a national network of First Nations Licensed Producers who will provide Red Market and other First Nations cannabis products – all approved by Health Canada,” said Isadore’s Day, founder and CEO of Red Market Mark. He continues, “After the initial exclusion from the Cannabis Act, RMB will ensure that Indigenous voices are heard and respected as the Canadian cannabis industry, and Canada itself, evolves. “
Red Market will launch its first products through a partnership with Royal City Cannabis Co., a certified artisanal cannabis producer who has earned a reputation for producing high quality, artisanal cannabis products.
“Royal City Cannabis Co is proud to partner with Red Market Mark to launch their First Nations cannabis brand. Our vision and values align fully with those of Red Market in terms of creating Indigenous inclusion in the cannabis industry, the need for economic reconciliation, and respect for the environment and our duty as stewards. “, said Mike abbott, founder and CEO of Royal City Cannabis.
