Province’s Bioscience Cluster Builds on Successes
An aggressive agenda of business growth, job creation, and capital investment highlighted today’s release of a new strategic plan for the province’s bioscience sector. Titled ‘Next Generation Prosperity’, the document

New faces at Natural Products Canada
The PEI BioAlliance and Natural Products Canada (NPC) welcome two new faces to NPC’s Charlottetown head office. Karen Wight, VP Investment and Finance, and Stephen Ball, Regional Director of NPC-Atlantic. Wight and Ball are two of five new hires that will be tasked with fulfilling NPC’s mandate to align and optimize Canada’s assets – natural resources, technologies, platforms, expertise, and world-class research – into a vibrant, pan-Canadian natural products ecosystem.
BioAccelerator Project Seen as Priority for Bioscience Sector Growth
The province’s bioscience industry says that the rapid growth of the sector has fully utilized available laboratory and incubation facilities and new infrastructure is required to support new business attraction and local company expansion.
