COVID-19 Resources for Members
During these challenging times, BioAlberta has been working for and representing our member companies at provincial and national tables. President Robb Stoddard remains in regular communication with authorities about what Alberta needs now and how the life science sectors can assist with crisis response. Since #COVID19AB began, BioAlberta has worked with our members to identify local companies who can assist both levels of government with production and procurement of supplies needed to fight this viral outbreak.
We are proud to say Alberta innovators and companies stepped forward and are giving their help. In fact, many have adapted their production for essential items and are making much needed products, supplies, equipment and PPE items. Thank you for this tremendous effort!
As government programs continue to evolve BioAlberta remains committed to navigating you to the supports you need to advance your business goals and to the growth and health of the life sciences community. We are also committed to helping you effectively cope during this COVID-19 outbreak, personally and professionally.
