Abattis Bioceutical Corp’s (OTC: ATTBF, CSE: ATT) Northern Vine Labs finally has its name shining bright on the canada.ca “Laboratories licensed to conduct activities with cannabis” page.
Previously, the page had not been updated since September 2, 2016, and Northern Vine Labs had acquired it’s license on the 16th of the same month. This was causing some anxiety among people wanting to verify Northern Vine’s license status.
In early April this year, we alerted all Abattis followers and investors to report the outdated information to canada.ca and urge them to include Northern Vine.
So, first order of business………
Thank You to All Those That Submitted a Report to Canada.ca
From conversations here and many other marijuana and investor forums, I know plenty of you – reading this right now – had previously taken the time to submit the report to the Government of Canada website.
I offer a sincere thank you for your effort and participation.
It appears we got the message across, as the proper canada.ca page now includes a row with the following details:
Northern Vine Canada Inc. BC 1-604-346-2685
Notice About The Phone Number Listed
Shortly after posting this update, others in contact with Abattis informed us that the canada.ca page listed an incorrect phone number.
I reached out to Abattis Administration yesterday and confirmed that this is true. They are actively working with Health Canada to have this rectified as soon as possible.
In the meantime, anyone attempting to contact Northern Vine is encouraged to use the following information:
Why Did The Update Take So Long?
Apparently, Health Canada only updates the information on the site about twice a year. Abattis just so happened to receive their license about 2 weeks after the last site update on September 2nd (2016).
You may also notice that additional licensed labs in Canada were also added to the list. It’s safe to say the delay was not especially concerning, and Abattis was not alone in waiting for Health Canada’s latest round of updates.
Is The Update Important to Northern Vine?
I would say so. If you read through the canada.ca and healthycanadians.gc.ca web pages, you’ll find a few instances that advise producers to go to that “Licensed Laboratories” page and contact an authorized dealer for more information.
This new listing should give Northern Vine more exposure, as more producers are likely to be seeking product testing services as we approach 2018.
Northern Vine’s presence on the list also clears up any confusion for those that may already have been aware of their business and services, BUT couldn’t previously verify them on the official canada.ca approval list. Now, Northern Vine’s information is all there, clear as day, ready for anyone searching for them to find.
