New WPH  project: Life Sciences and Healthcare - Labour Market Profiles


The City of Hamilton's Economic Development Strategy 2010-2015 identified life sciences as a key cluster for business development. Through the commercialization of research and development, the cluster is an important contributor in the creation of medical innovations and improvements in healthcare service and delivery. Hamilton is ideally situated to become a leader in the knowledge-based sector with its top academic institutions, state of the art research facilities and innovation networks.
Workforce Planning Hamilton is researching the demands and challenges of the cluster and learning how best to support the $2 trillion global industry.


Hamilton facts:
