Clinical Trials Ontario is a leading organization in the clinical trials community dedicated to strengthening, promoting and capitalizing on Ontario’s competitive advantages for conducting high-quality clinical trials. We work collaboratively with industry, research institutes, patients and the public and other health innovation organizations to improve the clinical trials environment and attract investment to the province, while supporting the highest ethical and quality standards.
In 2012, Ontario and Canada saw a decline in clinical trials activity. In response, the Government of Ontario, along with hospitals, universities, industry, research ethics boards and others came together to establish Clinical Trials Ontario (CTO) with a goal of strengthening, promoting and capitalizing on Ontario’s advantages for conducting quality clinical trials.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we’ve published A Decade of Impact: Improving Ontario’s Clinical Trials Environment, to highlight growth in the clinical trials sector.
“This work directly benefits the future of our province and reflects the spirit of innovation and desire to overcome challenges that have always been at the heart of Ontario’s researchers. ”
