The Ontario government has concluded a successful trade mission to Boston to promote the province’s growing life sciences sector and explore new opportunities for investment and job creation. Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, led a delegation of 33 companies and organizations to the BIO International Convention, the world’s largest life sciences conference.
“Ontario is building on its long history of innovation and excellence by showcasing our growing life sciences sector around the world,” said Minister Fedeli. “The Ontario companies that exhibited at the BIO International Convention are treating life-threatening diseases, developing transformative medicines and manufacturing innovative medical equipment. Together, we’re attracting new investments, strengthening relationships and fostering new opportunities for Ontario.”
Over the last two and half years, Ontario has attracted more than $3 billion in investments from global life sciences companies and biomanufacturers. This mission built on that success by helping companies explore opportunities to invest in Ontario and forge new partnerships.
