Robert Henderson
CEO, BioTalent Canada

A focus on relationship-building and the fact that their work improves people’s lives is what drives Mr. Henderson, President and CEO of BioTalent Canada, a national not-for-profit association whose mission is to ensure Canada’s biotech companies have access to the most skilled talent available.

The organization has a long track record of successful implementation of wage-subsidy programs and will disburse over $10.3 million in wage subsidies to create 1,400 job placements over the next four years. BioTalent Canada has a large network of 40 national, provincial and municipal corporate partners, including industry associations and biotech employers. With over 20 years of human resources experience and a background in biology, Mr. Henderson is a strong advocate of the importance of talent in driving the national innovation agenda, since without people there is no science.
