Advancing Canadian Health Care Through Innovation Series Procuring Change: Advancing Canadian Innovation

Since the start of COVID, a group of dedicated Canadian health industry leaders has been advocating for the adoption of mandatory government procurement with set-asides for small businesses, especially those with disadvantaged demographics. This is an established economic driver in the US, UK, EU, Australia, etc. Yet in Canada it is at best an after-thought and sadly focused on impediments rather than opportunities. Its absence exacerbated our critical supply chain issues, delayed vaccinations, and saw funding programs directly benefit foreign LMEs rather than our own SMEs.

To address these shortcomings, ACIP (Advancing Canadian Innovation in Procurement) was established under the auspices of Life Sciences Ontario.

On February 1, 2022, a panel of experts will explain the merits, what currently can be done, and how Canada will benefit from properly applying ACIP.

Panel:

  • Madison MacColl – Gowling WLG
  • Wendy Cukier – Diversity Institute
  •  Anita Nador – Gowling WLG
  • Courtney Cole, CEO, ForAHealthyMe
