The Edmonton ecosystem has a range of assets in the health innovation space. This includes Canada’s largest integrated health system and a readiness to diversify the economy; researchers and entrepreneurs who have created and will create new products, devices and system innovations; and a willingness to take risks in order to drive growth.
Thanks to a strong network of six post-secondary institutions, Edmonton has one of the largest pools of highly skilled talent in the country, and each plays an integral part in delivering innovative care, engaging in world-class research and commercializing new technologies.
Significant alignment and momentum has been created among key partners in Edmonton’s health innovation ecosystem. This is marked by the collective vision and common goals emerging from across the public, private, not-for-profit and philanthropic sectors, and leveraging investments by these partners in the system.

Edmonton, Alberta is Canada’s youngest and fastest-growing metropolitan city. Here, you’ll find an innovative spirit and world class education system, paired with a family-focused lifestyle – there is no place we would rather call home. From the first snowfall magically covering our vast River Valley to the late night summer sunsets, Edmonton isn’t where we have to be, it is where we want to be. #yeg
Maintaining our ever growing local economy is important to Edmontonians. Whether that means grabbing brunch at a locally owned restaurant, stopping by the 104 Street Market or shopping at one of the many locally owned boutiques, “Made in Yeg” is loud and proud.
In Edmonton, a positive work-life balance is nearly as important as cheering on the Oilers. We make time for neighbours, family and friends and by the time the next long weekend rolls around, we are ready to head to one of our many festivals, out to the cottage, or even out of town to the easily accessible and beautiful Rocky Mountains.
