Commercialize ideas. Grow the economy. Save lives.

A thriving economy has always depended on the health of its people. Today, new innovations in healthcare are helping people live better lives and improving patient outcomes while making the healthcare industry more affordable and improving efficiencies.

From April 1–5, you’re invited to Health Innovation Week, Canada’s largest gathering of health startups, investors and the health ecosystem. Hosted by MaRS and held across the Toronto region, Health Innovation Week allows participants to network, secure funding and learn from industry experts. This year, the conference’s many events focus on three key themes:


Startups and their employees are on the front lines of health innovation. Hear from the brilliant minds behind the latest technologies and trends through keynotes, live panels and hackathons.


Behind every great idea is a passionate investor. Mix and mingle with startup leaders and diverse financers via networking events, pitch competitions and receptions.


A better healthcare system starts with adopting new technologies to create better outcomes. Engage healthcare providers and government representatives looking to improve policy and infrastructure to improve lives.
