â�?¢ Strong influence of tighter regulations from Health Canada & FDA
â�?¢ Development of dosage form to commercialization of products â�?�? very few products go through the whole process in Canada and too many Canadian inventions end up being foreign products imported into Canada
â�?¢ There is little incentive in Canada to go from Molecule to Market
