The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry

“Genomics has a great potential to improve the lives of Canadians while also protecting our biodiversity and the environment. Through Genome Canada and the Bison Integrated Genomics (BIG) project, our government is securing a better and healthier future for Canada’s bison population and opening the door to significant societal and economic benefits for everyone. This investment is good for biodiversity, good for the environment and good for Canadians."
