In February 2021, Ontario Cannabis Holdings Corp. (Corner Cannabis), merged with Trees Corporation to become a premier national cannabis retailer.
With a respected history in BC, representing one of the province’s most recognizable brands, Trees embodies what it means to be an authentic consumer-centric retailer. Trees provides a comfortable and educational retail experience for all ages, connoisseurs and newbies alike.
In Ontario, Trees owns and operates the Corner Cannabis brand, one of the earliest retailers to become licensed in the province, and one of the most respected. With a large portfolio of stores scheduled to open throughout 2021, Corner Cannabis is destined to become one of Ontario’s largest cannabis retailers.
Co-Founder and CEO
Mr. Conquergood has an extensive background in Canadian retail, previously serving as a senior operations executive with Shoppers Drug Mart, followed by a series of successful entrepreneurial endeavors in the highly regulated health and pharmaceutical industries leading up to NewLeaf Cannabis. As co-founder and CEO of NewLeaf, Jon and his team built and operated a chain of 25 cannabis retail stores in Alberta during the nascent days of legalization.
NewLeaf was acquired by Meta Growth Corp. in late 2018 and at the time of its sale, was Canada’s largest organically grown Canadian cannabis retailer. Jon co-founded Ontario Cannabis Holdings Corp in September 2018, a cannabis retail business focused in Ontario.

Mr. Holmgren joined NewLeaf Cannabis as CFO in the early phase of its ascent to becoming Canada’s largest cannabis retail company prior to its sale to Meta Growth Corp., in September 2018.
