Biotech week

Creative Canadian Science: National Biotechnology Week Overview

National Biotechnology Week drew to a close with a record number of engagement opportunities across the country. The events were created by our regional accord partners and raised awareness for the industry, highlighting the passion and power of biotechnology players across the country. The companies were proud to present their work and show the promise of today’s Canadian bio-economy.

Canadian biotechnology companies are developing sustainable bioenergy technologies to power cars and jet aircrafts. Renewable composite materials are now an essential component of virtually every aspect of our lives, from transportation to housing to manufacturing. Clean chemicals are produced for a host of other consumer and commercial products. Many sectors are reinventing themselves and preparing to compete globally in the very promising bio-economy.

With thousands of participants each year, National Biotechnology Week is an opportunity to collaborate and showcase the impact our industry has on the daily lives of Canadians.

BIOTECanada Advocacy Day saw industry leaders from agriculture, health and industrial sectors join Members of Parliament to discuss the strategy for continuing to build the sector in Canada. Together we are advancing science-based public policy and increasing awareness of biotechnology.

Canada’s biotechnology industry is now an essential component of the transformation and redefinition of many traditional economic cornerstones, including forestry, energy, aerospace and other manufacturing industries. In partnership with these sectors, the biotechnology industry has helped position the Canadian economy as a leader in the emerging global bio-economy. There is now a bio-based component in virtually all sectors of the economy in the form of improved products and processes.
