With the new state-of-the-art greenhouse being built in Dauphin, a lot of people will be employed.
Once the facility is fully operational, over 50 people could be working for Vermillion Growers.
Lucky Deschauer talks about who the company has already begun hiring within the community:
“We’ve started hiring people currently. Most of the people now are technical people, as well as growers and scouts that are going to be going through training. So, they’ll be trained over the next year, year and a half, and once we are up and running with the full 30 acres, we’ll be at about 50 and 60 full-time people, and anywhere between 70 and 80 part-time people.”
Initially, Vermillion Growers is planning to hire labourers for their new facility, to be built in the north end of Dauphin.
