Adopting our Advantage: Supporting a thriving health science sector in Ontario

    Ontario needs to be an early adopter of its homegrown innovations

    Ontario’s health science sector is positioned for success. We are established leaders in diverse fields of study, and gifted with a robust research community and entrepreneurial culture. Yet, there is a growing sense that much of the sector’s potential is unrealized, as it lacks necessary capacity to capitalize, commercialize, and diffuse innovation. Most worryingly, Ontario faces serious hurdles bringing its discoveries to market in this province, thus limiting return on both public and private investment.

    In Adopting our Advantage: Supporting a thriving health science sector in Ontario, the OCC identifies the central challenges to sector growth: access to local capital, experienced managerial talent, and the public health care market. Through recommendations to the provincial and federal governments, as well as to industry, the OCC identifies how to create an environment that supports success.

    Ontario possesses all the ingredients for a world-class health science sector. We must now ensure we create the conditions to allow business to thrive.
