CASTL addresses the talent needs in bioscience, a sector of national importance as exemplified by the Government of Canada’s Health and Bioscience Economic Strategy Table, that identified skills and talent as a fundamental gap for the future prosperity of the sector.
A Dynamic Career in a Growing Industry
The bioscience industry is at the core of our society and is evolving to meet the challenges of the world we live in. From pandemics to climate change and feeding the world sustainably the industry offers fulfilling career opportunities in an innovative environment.
According to the Government of Canada, by 2025, Canada will double the size of the health and biosciences sector and become a top-three global hub by:
- leveraging and advancing innovative technologies;
- attracting and retaining capital, skills and talent;
- and ensuring a vibrant ecosystem that will unleash the full potential of the sector and lead to improved health outcomes. (Health and Biosciences, Economic Strategy Table)
