Flow-Through Shares for Biotech: Welcome to National Biotechnology Week in Canada

Tomorrow is the first day of National Biotechnology Week in Canada. The imagenation.ca website has lots of info, and you can follow @BIOTECanadaNBW on Twitter.

One of this year’s big policy initiatives is a push to expand Canada’s Flow-Through Shares program from mining and wind power to include biotech and other cleantech companies. I gave a short presentation today on what Flow-Through Shares are, how they work and why they’re a great idea for Canada’s biotech industry.* Enjoy:

Happy National Biotechnology Week, everyone!

    That’s a very interesting idea. My experience with flow through shares has been, naturally, with oil and gas companies. I’m not sure to what extent the Canadian government prioritizes building up Bio-Tech companies compared to how much it wants to build up its mining sector. Hope it works.
