Advancements in medical technology improve the lives of Canadians everyday by providing more accurate diagnoses, enhancing treatments, reducing disabilities, and delivering better medical care. Medical technology provides more accurate diagnoses, enhancing treatments, reducing disabilities, and delivering better medical care.
Canada has the ninth largest medical technology market – and with an aging population, it’s a market that’s projected to grow steadily over the next decade. At the center of this economic growth is the need for new talent skilled in the area of medical technologies.
While Canada is known for its highly educated population, we have a shortage of skilled and experienced employees in the medtech sector. The MedTech Talent Accelerator program aims to solve this problem by advancing skills development and training in medical technologies.
