OBIO® Releases Report on Actionable Strategies to Establish a World-leading Bioscience Industry in the Province of Ontario.

Toronto May 17, 2017 OBIO® released a report on actionable strategies to establish a world-leading bioscience industry in the province of Ontario. In January, OBIO brought together 50 industry executives, investors, academic, health system and Government leaders committed to working together to attract “sticky” capital and grow domestic health science companies that can serve a global market. OBIO released its recommendations arising from that summit and met with MPPs at Queen’s Park to discuss the steps needed to implement.

Over the past decade, Ontario has emerged as a player in the global health science and technology market by building a strong foundation of health science research and entrepreneurship, but despite our impressive success the picture remains incomplete. Ontario continues to struggle to anchor and grow these companies into global players
