Your health is in good hands in London. Known as the go-to destination for healthcare in Ontario, London’s health sector is advancing human health by leading research, development, and commercialization in the industry.  

London’s 60+ companies and hospitals and their 25,000+ employees embrace strengths in clinical trials, medical devices, and medical technologies. With a complete range of scientific, clinical, testing, and data management services available, London has the leadership, facilities, talent, and capabilities to support start-ups, scale-ups, and mature companies.

London’s many strengths in the health sector are based on a foundation of highly regarded academic and clinical research capabilities, supported by two large research facilities, two teaching hospitals, contract research organizations, and an innovative private sector. As such, London has a rich history of medical firsts, including the discovery of Insulin by Fredrick Banting, and advances in human trials for HIV vaccines.
