LSO’s response to Ontario Government “A Plan to Stay Open” legislation

Toronto, Ontario – Life Sciences Ontario (LSO) applauds the Ontario government’s proposed new legislation “A Plan to Stay Open – Pandemic and Emergency Preparedness Act, 2022,” which includes a commitment to launch a provincial life sciences strategy.

For years, LSO and our partners from the life sciences sector have been advocating for a coordinated life sciences strategy that can help support early-stage companies, attract new investment and encourage early adoption of Ontario-made innovations in our hospitals and health system.

Today marks a significant step forward in our collective efforts to build back better from the pandemic and support our health and economic security for years to come. We encourage the government to continue consulting with industry partners and stakeholders as they further develop and implement this strategy.
