Canada international trade minister announces expansion of CAN Health Network to Quebec, other parts

Ottawa/IBNS:  Mary Ng, Canadian Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development, announced the expansion of Coordinated Accessible National (CAN) Health Network to Quebec and remote communities, a news release has said.

Being committed to helping small and medium-sized businesses bring their innovations and initiative to markets across Canada and around the world, the country has granted an additional $30 million in financing through Budget 2022 facilitating business growth from coast to coast to coast.

Besides providing an integrated market, the CAN Health Network connects businesses with hospitals and healthcare providers with new medical technologies needed to help patients, test their innovations, connect with the government procurement process, and access opportunities that help them scale and grow.

Since the launch of the network four years back, its effectiveness has already been proven by connecting Canadian businesses working in health technology with the provincial governments across the country and supporting over 40 companies with $55 million of procurement and over 1,000 jobs created.

Canada's government has invested to date more than $42 million to support CAN Health, enabling entrepreneurs across Canada to grow, while strengthening our universal healthcare system by encouraging home-grown innovation.
