As a gold partner of Elevate, Canada's largest tech and innovation festival, Aurora has been instrumental in shaping the Elevate Cannabis and Elevate Health tracks that will feature leading experts in research, medicine, finance and entrepreneurship in the cannabis industry.

"We are thrilled to partner with Elevate this year. This conference is about showcasing Canada as a leader in technology as well as demonstrating a diverse and inclusive society. This is precisely what Aurora stands for – innovation, community, culture," says Paula Whitmore, Director, Partnerships and Events, Aurora. "The line-up of speakers and topics demonstrates our desire to work with different industries to develop innovative solutions and products in the recreational and medical environments."

Aurora and Elevate are pleased to announce a diverse group of thought leaders throughout the Elevate Cannabis and Elevate Health tracks, including:

  • Dr. Jonathan Page: Co-founder of Anandia Laboratories Inc., a pioneer in the cannabis field who co-led the Canadian team that first sequenced the cannabis genome. His work has helped discover the biochemical pathway of the major cannabinoids.
  • Kelly Narine: Vice-President of Research, Aurora is leading meaningful, robust research and clinical studies to generate more evidence for the medical uses of cannabis and looking at real-world outcomes globally.
  • Tarren Wolfe: Co-founder of BC Northern Lights and Urban Cultivator, leaders in the commercial and residential hydroponic industry that make growing sustainable, organic cannabis, herbs and vegetables accessible to all.
  • Brandi Leifso: A 28-year old powerhouse who launched a socially conscious brand of green beauty products with a mission to break stigmas. In collaboration with Aurora, she'll be launching a line of CBD-infused skincare.
