Bridging the divide – Creating opportunities for the Aboriginal Peoples of Canada to enter the bio-economy

cover of report

Areas of opportunity in the emerging bio-economy extend from agriculture and forestry to human health and life sciences.What they have in common is their potential to improve quality of life and contribute to prosperity across the country—including the communities of the Aboriginal Peoples of Canada.

A ready supply of skilled, qualified talent is essential for success. The Aboriginal Peoples of Canada could be an important part of that supply—but to become so theymust have stronger encouragement to enter into the sciences, and be provided with a greater number of educational and occupational opportunities within their chosen fields.

BioTalent Canada is committed to bridging the divide: completing the connection between Aboriginal Peoples’potential and the biotechnology sector’s need for talent.
