Director ACCRESRural Leaf

Alfred Schaefer was raised in the small mountain town of Smithers BC where he currently resides and is the general manager/partner at rural leaf cannabis.

Alfred has a BSc from Thompson Rivers University in Chemical Biology and has worked in a number of industries including research at the University of Alberta, to mineral exploration in the remote parts of BC before settling in the cannabis industry. He and his business partners founded rural leaf cannabis in 2018 and were granted a retail licence in 2019, when they opened their doors on the 1 year anniversary of legalization in Canada.

When not working in the shop, Alfred can usually be found out in the mountains, rivers, and lakes exploring Northwest BC.
