COVID-19 has shone a spotlight on the need for a strong domestic life sciences industry – both to address and secure the health of Canadians, and to drive economic recovery and growth going forward. The federal government has recognized this imperative through historically strong support for life sciences in Budget 2021 - $2.2B over seven years spanning the innovation continuum – from basic research, translation/commercialization, capital generation, clinical trials, and biomanufacturing. But Canada is too small to compete on a global scale unless these investments and the organizations behind them are well-aligned and are collaborating in a very meaningful way. On this panel, we will hear from some of the publicly-funded organizations coming together and leading the way in making Canada a global life sciences leader.
