Canada’s Living Lab
New Brunswick’s aging population provides an ideal place to innovate in the healthcare space. A microcosm of Canada’s makeup, New Brunswick provides the ability to work with both urban and rural regions, Indigenous communities, and a bilingual (English and French) population.
The province is now seeing unprecedented spending on digital health – and that means opportunity for companies. The Canadian government invested $75 million in the Healthy Seniors Pilot Project, which will fund a wide range of applied research projects. Additional pan-Canadian partnerships with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), CAN Health Network, and Surrey, British Columbia’s Health and Technology District, mean we are well-positioned to bring even more world-class digital health companies to our region.
