Bioscience Cluster Overview
The Prince Edward Island Bioscience Cluster is the location of choice for companies engaged in the research, development, and commercialization of bioactive-based human, animal, and fish health and nutrition products. Since 2005, the PEI Bioscience Cluster has more than tripled in size, with remarkable growth in business revenues and employment, and a marked increase in private and public-sector investments in our companies.
The PEI Cluster includes over 60 bioscience companies, several research institutions, and is home to Emergence – Canada’s virtual Bioscience Business Incubator and Natural Products Canada, North America’s first business accelerator dedicated to the commercialization of products and technologies based on natural product chemistry.
Our Cluster continues to exceed expectations in revenue growth, job creation, and investment. We’re providing regional leadership as an important centre in Canada’s bioscience innovation ecosystem.
