Thomas Fraleigh
President and Founder, Vivariant Laboratories

Born in Toronto, I’ve always been passionate about science and the natural world. I studied Biology and Chemistry at University, worked in several laboratories and went on to work in the corporate life sciences sector in Canada and USA. In July of 2017, I quit my corporate gig in St. Louis, Missouri and moved back to Toronto to start a cannabis testing laboratory, Vivariant. It’s an honour to act as a testing partner to the Canadian cannabis sector and work with our customers to solve their challenges with this complex natural product. I do some design work as a hobby, have an orchid tissue culture lab in my home basement and enjoy spending time at my family’s farm in Uxbridge.

Let's get a little more personal...
