Media Advisory – The Economic Club of Canada: The Life Sciences Industry of Tomorrow: Healthy Canadians, Healthy Future

Posted on February 8, 2018

Ottawa, February 8, 2018 – We are at a pivotal moment in the evolution of life sciences. For the first time in human history the ability to cure cancer is within our grasp thanks to revolutionary breakthroughs in gene therapy. But these life-saving and life-changing innovations are of little benefit if Canadians can’t access them.

This Friday, Pamela Fralick, President of Innovative Medicines Canada, will speak to the Economic Club of Canada in Toronto about the Government of Canada’s recent proposed policy changes to Canada’s patented drug pricing regime, and the profound implications these could have for Canadian healthcare and life sciences for decades to come.

The event will be broadcast live over the internet.

Innovative Medicines Canada President Pamela Fralick will be available for media interviews after the event.
