To highlight a few of her many accomplishments, Jane has been has been a high school teacher, an interior designer, worked in graphic design all while raising four, now grown-up children.This is not a story of all work no play as Jane has always managed to find time to indulge her passion for Art, Music, skiing and cycling.
Fiercely independent, Jane wants it known that against all odds, this store is a family run business with no association or ties to any other corporate identities.
The Willson family has ambitions of franchising Jane’s Cannabis and to secure other locations in Ontario once this store is underway.
