Since 2005, the PEI Bioscience Cluster has more than tripled in size, with remarkable growth in business revenues and employment, and a marked increase in private and public-sector investments in our companies.
The PEI Cluster includes over 60 bioscience companies, several research institutions, and is home to Emergence – Canada’s virtual Bioscience Business Incubator and Natural Products Canada, North America’s first business accelerator dedicated to the commercialization of products and technologies based on natural product chemistry.
