Participating in Global Biotech Week is a unique opportunity to engage with policymakers, industry leaders, and the public to discuss the transformative potential of biotech and explore collaboration opportunities. We look forward to spotlighting the news, events, and latest developments coming out of the Canadian biotech industry which are setting the pace for global industry standards.

Global Biotech Week 2024 is set for September 22-28, 2024, and it’s your chance to be part of a worldwide celebration that started right here in Canada. Since launching the first National Biotech Week in 2003, what began as a modest gathering of provincial partners has blossomed into an international awareness week, inspiring similar initiatives across the globe, from the United States to Europe and Australia. Global Biotech Week now plays a pivotal role in highlighting the critical impact of biotech innovations on the global stage, showcasing how they drive the competitiveness of various sectors that underpin our economies.
