A bio­man­u­fac­tur­ing site is com­ing to Cana­da’s Prince Ed­ward Is­land

Prince Ed­ward Is­land may be known more to read­ers of the Anne of Green Gables se­ries of books, but a new ef­fort by the lo­cal and na­tion­al au­thor­i­ties looks to turn the pic­turesque is­land in­to a hub for bio­man­u­fac­tur­ing and biotech ac­tiv­i­ty.

The gov­ern­ments of Cana­da and Prince Ed­ward Is­land are plac­ing a CAN 50 mil­lion ($37.4 mil­lion) in­vest­ment in­to what is be­ing dubbed the BioAc­cel­er­a­tor, with the project be­ing spear­head­ed by Prince Ed­ward Is­land BioAl­liance, a lo­cal busi­ness or­ga­ni­za­tion. Ac­cord­ing to an email from a PEI BioAl­liance spokesper­son, both the Cana­di­an gov­ern­ment and the lo­cal gov­ern­ment con­tributed CAN 25 mil­lion ($18.7 mil­lion) to the project.
