Our Story

In April 2014, Canopy Growth became the first cannabis company in North America to be publicly traded. We followed that with being the first to complete a “bought deal”, to diversify our platform to include both greenhouse and indoor growing, to acquire a major competitor and to be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Continuing those firsts, we remain the only cannabis company to be a member of a major global stock market index, in this case the S&P/TSX Composite index.
