BIOTECanada spearheaded the installation of the Canada Pavilion and secured an impressive lineup of programming over the course of the event. With an extraordinary ecosystem of 900+ Canadian biotech companies, the Canada Pavilion will feature regional announcements by elected officials on skills development, and showcase the growth of the Canadian biomanufacturing sector with recent milestones of industry leadership and investment success. 

“I’m pleased to see such a great turnout this year with 300+ Canadian companies and organizations in attendance. Typically, Canada is one of the largest delegations present at the BIO International Convention. The scheduled programming we’ve organized showcases how policy and investment from all levels of government are enabling Canadian competitiveness, fostering growth, attracting talent, and building the next wave of industry innovation for the global marketplace,“ said Casey.
