Based in Mountain View County, Alberta, with a 55,200 square foot purpose-built production facility, Aurora is one of the largest and fastest-growing Licensed Producers in Canada. The company is currently constructing “Aurora Sky”, a new highly advanced and automated 800,000 square foot production facility located at Edmonton International Airport. At full production, Aurora Sky will be the highest capacity cannabis production facility in the world, capable of producing in excess of 100,000 kg of high quality cannabis per year.

Terry founded Aurora in 2013 when the Canadian federal government created a new regulatory regime for the establishment of a national medical cannabis system. Investing $2.5 million of his own capital in start-up funding, he secured a 160 acre parcel of land in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and designed and built what is now widely recognized as one of the most advanced and efficient cannabis production facilities in the world. Terry has assembled a diverse and highly skilled team of experts from a broad range of disciplines to execute on the company’s business strategy and vision to build the world’s foremost cannabis company.
An entrepreneur and Alberta business leader, Terry has served as President/CEO of six other highly successful businesses, one of which, Superior Safety Codes Inc, has received an award as one of Canada’s top 50 fastest-growing companies.
