About this event


The Walrus Leadership Forum on Life Sciences

The pandemic has made Canadians very aware of the state of our national health care system. As discussed at The Walrus Leadership Forum on Health Care, we are invested in understanding how to build a better life sciences infrastructure in the country to ensure every Canadian receives the health care they need.

We return to this topic at The Walrus Leadership Forum on Life Sciences, where panellists will discuss the strategies that can improve the health care system and examine the economic benefits of investing in the life sciences.

Join us for expert insights into the health care, industry, and economic challenges and opportunities Canada’s life sciences strategy faces today.
