OTTAWA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A national labour market report released today highlights labour trends
in the expandingly diverse biotech sector that now also includes medical
cannabis, digital health and artificial intelligence, and sustainable
development. “Green crossovers – Emerging horizons in Canada’s
bio-economy,” examines the potential of Canada’s “green-economy” on the
biotech sector and highlights the success of BioTalent Canada’s Career
Focus Green Jobs and Science Horizons career placement programs and
their impacts on the bio-economy, the organization’s first foray into
the sustainable development sector.

Full report available on our new website at biotalent.ca/crossovers.

Key highlights include:

  • Industry snapshots from 7 organizations that represent Canada’s green
    sectors both nationally and provincially
  • Survey results from 424 new grad wage subsidy placements and their 229
    industry employers
  • Over 93% of the career placements were maintained after wage subsidies
    ended

“The bio-economy is now crossing over directly into emerging industries
such as digital health and artificial intelligence, medical cannabis
production and bio-remediation,” says Rob Henderson, President and CEO
BioTalent Canada. “These existing and growing sub-sectors represent the
future, not only for the planet, but for bio-economy talent, and Canada
must be prepared to embrace the future of innovation, prosperity and
conscientious investment.”

This report brings together data and feedback from across Canada and was
developed in partnership with BIOTECanada, ECO Canada, BioNB,
Bioindustrial Innovation Canada, Bioenterprise, the Canadian Urban
Transit Research and Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC), ERA Environmental
Management Solutions and PGL Environmental Consultants.

BioTalent Canada will be expanding on these new and existing sectors
through their bio-economy national labour market information study, with
market research set to start later this year. For more information on
