Canada @BIO2019

June 3-6, 2019

BIOTECanada will once again be providing members with important networking opportunities throughout the BIO International Convention. The Canadian delegation at BIO continues to grow in size and diversity. Each year the industry uses the opportunity to showcase how important it is for industry and government to work in partnership to advance the Canadian biotech sector.

BIOTECanada, Provincial accord members and the Ontario and Quebec Provincial governments have worked to provide a Canadian pavilion to bring companies to the forefront on this global stage. Canadian engagement is historically very high at BIO.
