Health & Life Sciences


Sudbury is quickly becoming known as the healthcare hub for the North not just for  patient care, but for our cutting-edge research and education in medicine. We are home to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) who are educating the healthcare professionals of the future with a focus on the health needs of Northern Ontario. We are also home to the award winning Health Sciences North Research Institute (HSNRI), which recently opened a brand-new state of the art facility. More and more, highly trained specialists and world-class researchers are calling Sudbury home for its  unparalleled combination of urban amenities, natural assets and affordable lifestyle.

We have a robust and growing health and life sciences sector, with the core sector consisting of more than 700 businesses and operations. It is expected that the health and life sciences sector will continue to grow and play a crucial role in the local economy.

Health Sciences North and our post-secondary institutions continue to recruit high-profile researchers in order to anchor further research, attract additional funding, and entice graduate students and researchers to the community.

We have a bright and exciting future in healthcare with construction of the  new Medical Learner’s Centre space, PET Scan installation and potential NEO Kids and Family Program expansion, all at Health Sciences North, Sudbury’s academic health centre.
