According to BioTalent Canada’s labour market report, Sequencing the Data, access to capital and skilled talent are the two top challenges for the biotech sector. Despite the access-to-skilled-labor challenge, only 7.6% of bio-economy companies have persons with disabilities on staff, a figure well below other industries.

The Opportunities Fund wage subsidy program addresses these issues directly, alleviating the low employment of persons with disabilities in biotech by introducing a wage subsidy to off-set the start-up costs of orientation, integration, skills development and accommodations. Apply today!
