The president of THC Inc. said between 20 and 30 students will be hired during the summer once the company expands. (Sean Kilpatrick/Canadian Press) A deal between a Nova Scotia university and a newly licensed medical marijuana company aims to give students on-the-job training in a budding industry. St. Francis Xavier University has signed a three-year agreement with THC Dispensaries Canada Inc. near Antigonish, N.S., that includes co-op placements for students that could start as early as this spring. “It will be very exciting for them, and it will also be very exciting for us to meet some of these students, and hopefully hold on to them after they graduate,” said the company’s president, Frank MacMaster. MacMaster said about 20 to 30 students will be taking part in the co-op program as the company begins growing cannabis at its 7,000-square-foot facility.
