Join Invest Vancouver, the Metro Vancouver region’s economic development leadership service, at life science leader Zymeworks’ Mount Pleasant HQ for conversation about the Metro Vancouver region’s life science industry. Featuring industry champions from across the region, our "Life Sciences in Metro Vancouver: Shaping a Globally Prominent R&D” event will explore the strengths in life sciences in the Metro Vancouver region, the opportunities emerging in the region, and what actions are needed to support and advance the continued growth of the sector.
The Metro Vancouver region has a growing, export-oriented life sciences industry supported by a robust life sciences ecosystem and a pool of highly specialized talent. With a history of innovation that includes significant contributions to the development of the COVID-19 vaccine, the region is increasingly attracting global attention. Current economic uncertainty notwithstanding, the long-term outlook for the industry is bright. Invest Vancouver’s upcoming report “Life Sciences in Metro Vancouver: Shaping a Globally Prominent R&D Hub” recommends three critical actions to level up this important industry.
