Health and Life Sciences

The future of health is here

On the cutting edge of scientific breakthroughs

Health and life science companies in the Edmonton region are part of a strong, growing, and tight-knit community working at the cutting edge of scientific breakthroughs. Scientists are at the forefront of research in diabetes, virology, and precision health, and we have world class facilities to prove it.

The Edmonton region is accelerating research and development and increasing productivity in life sciences

The region has strengths in pharmaceutical manufacturing, drug discovery, nutraceuticals, diagnostics, medical devices, and sits at the convergence of artificial intelligence and health. Companies in the region benefit from operating in Alberta–home to Canada’s largest, fully integrated healthcare system that serves a diverse population of 4.3 million people.

Collaboration, digitalization, strong academic and industry partnerships paired with an entrepreneurial mindset have led to a boom in this sector. The region is teeming with potential strategic partners for anyone looking to invest.
