Since 2005, the BioAlliance has facilitated the work of businesses, academic and research institutions, and federal and provincial government agencies in establishing the bioscience sector as a key pillar in the economic foundation of the province of Prince Edward Island. We enthusiastically and actively work to develop relationships with industry players from around the world who want to work within a collaborative bioscience business ecosystem. We do this, in part, by:

  • Supporting the growth of  biotechnology companies in PEI
  • Facilitating the application of new technology through research and helping to identify new commercial opportunities
  • Leveraging and building the reputation of PEI and Atlantic Canada’s bioscience industries

When you join the PEI Bioscience Cluster, you become a part of a compelling bioscience industry network that cultivates innovation and excellence!

There is an unrivalled collaboration between partners in Prince Edward Island and there is motivation to grow businesses quicker here. We have so many assets – a great climate for business, state-of-the-art infrastructure, an educated workforce, and a safe and attractive community to live and work.
