- Canadian biotech and healthcare industry
The world’s second-highest number of bio-tech companies are concentrated in Canada (after USA). Canada represents the 10th largest market for pharmaceutical sales. It is Canada’s infrastructure, talent and ready access to key markets that helps draw the world’s largest life sciences companies in Canada including Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Gilead, Novartis, Johnson-Johnson and others conducting research, running clinical trials and manufacturing new drugs.
With hot spots for cancer research, radiation therapies, regenerative treatments, brain and vascular health from coast to coast, multinational organizations recognize that life-changing advancements in patient care are happening in Canada. Innovative lifesaving treatment protocols, pharmaceutical drug therapies and medical devices developed in Canada contribute to the place of this country as a world leader in health sciences. Canada’s leadership in digital technology and robotics is helping to change patient care through future-focused advancements in everything from medtech to medical manufacturing.
