    Changing the rules of the game: how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Canadian life sciences sector - A virtual discussion

    One year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the impacts are felt widely across the life sciences sector. Canadian companies in this industry have experienced unprecedented challenges and immense pressure to pivot rapidly. Despite these exceptional circumstances, the sector has weathered the pandemic much better than originally predicted.

    Yet, one thing cannot be ignored: the rules of the game for this sector have changed over the last year and further transformation is likely.  Key topics:

    • Canadian vaccine manufacturing capabilities and capacity
    • The impact of Canadian Environmental and Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) on life sciences financing and innovation across the country.
