Clinical Trials BC
Unleashing the Potential of Clinical Trials in BC: A Vision Takes Shape
For the first time, BC has a vision for clinical trials. Thanks to the collective input from over 170 stakeholders across BC and beyond, we now have a shared vision and a foundation for the clinical trials community. Together we will build on strengths, address gaps and challenges with the common goal of system and organizational change for the benefit of British Columbians.
Value of clinical trials
Clinical trials are essential for evaluating the safety, effectiveness and outcomes of life-saving and health promoting health interventions such as vaccines, drugs, devices and health services.
British Columbia’s comparative advantages position the province for a unique clinical trials ecosystem that supports high-performing clinical trial sites. Clinical trials hosted in our province, both commercial and investigator-led, have resulted in better clinical outcomes. Bring your clinical trial to British Columbia, a worldwide hub for life sciences and biomanufacturing.
