BioNova has added its voice alongside a group of 18 other health sciences and business associations asking for a national life sciences strategy and increased collaboration. The online campaign, led by Life Sciences Ontario, began with an open letter addressed to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Jason Field, president and CEO of Life Sciences Ontario, told Research Money in an interview that they are pushing for a strategy that will cut across government agencies and ministries. He noted that the sector is unique in that it affects not only researchers and private companies, but also patients, hospitals and the broader healthcare system.
