EDMONTON – Shares in Aurora Cannabis Inc. will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange next week.

The marijuana company says it has been approved for listing on the U.S. market and will start trading on Oct. 23.

Aurora’s shares will trade under ticker symbol ACB, the same one it trades under on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Aurora chief executive Terry Booth called the U.S. listing an important milestone.

Shares in the company soared last month following a report by BNN Bloomberg that it was in talks with Coca-Cola Co. to develop pot-infused drinks.

However, Aurora said at the time that while it does engage in exploratory talks from time to time, there was no deal to announce.
