Health & Life Sciences

Health & Life Sciences

Demographics, fiscal restraint, new technologies and consumer expectations are creating significant challenges and opportunities in the industry.

We provide a broad range of services to meet the unique needs of healthcare entities.

As the Health & Life Sciences industry continues to evolve at an unprecedented rate, the need to think more broadly and support the overarching goal of creating health populations must remain paramount; The creation of a prosperous, future-state healthcare system in Canada should not stumble before the hurdles of funding reforms, fiscal pressures and patient centricity.

In the face of such a unique combination of pressures impacting the industry, healthcare and life sciences leaders require more than just guidance from a trusted adviser — they need a trusted and forward-thinking partner with the competency, capability and capacity to go beyond the bottom line.

With deep industry insight, experience and a global resource of subject matter experts for support, KPMG in Canada works you to overcome contentious challenges and capitalize on decisive opportunities with nuanced solutions. We foster collaboration between all levels of the government, and help create partnerships between the public and private sectors in support of the innovation, value creation and development of intellectual capital required to build an integrated health ecosystem:
