Feb. 22, 2019 - Are you interested in providing your input on priority areas for Canada's bioeconomy? BioNB and BioIndustrial Innovation Canada hosted a webinar this week about the ongoing development of a national bioeconomy strategy. A recording of the webinar can be found here

The webinar introduces the project and describes how stakeholders can provide their input using an online survey tool. Please note that if you already attended one of the in-person sessions held in January and February 2019, it is not necessary for you to complete this survey.

The survey will be open until March 4, 2019.

Canada has never had a national strategy for the industrial bioeconomy and agriculture/forestry biomass utilization. With support from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, BioNB and BioIndustrial Innovation Canada are building a national strategy through consultations to provide the national picture of the Canadian opportunity. This webinar and survey represent the final phase of our consultations leading up to the final report.

This project is supported by AAFC, with the additional support of:

  • BioAlberta
  • BIOTECanada
  • CRIBIQ – Consortium de recherche et innovations en bioprocédés industriels au Québec
  • Forest Products Association of Canada
  • FPInnovations
  • Manitoba Agriculture
  • Nova Scotia Innovation Hub
  • Ontario Agri-Food Technologies

Participants in the webinar will learn how to provide their input on key priority areas and recommended actions for the Canadian bioeconomy as the BioDesign team builds this strategy. This webinar is intended to engage stakeholders who did not attend any of the in-person sessions held in January and February 2019.
