Advancing Healthcare Through Innovative Technologies and Devices
Who We Are
Welcome to MEDEC!
For more than 40 years, MEDEC, as the association representing Canada’s medical technology companies, has been working in partnership with health care providers, patients and governments to contribute to better health and more sustainable healthcare for Canadians.
MEDEC members are creating implantable devices, surgical tools, diagnostic technologies and many more innovations that are improving the lives of patients in Canada and around the world every day. These technologies are leading to earlier and more accurate diagnoses, less invasive procedures (meaning faster recoveries and reduced hospital stays), improved treatment options and reduced wait times, to name just a few of the benefits. The benefits offered by innovative medical technologies provide not only improved health outcomes and more efficient care and in doing so offer deliver value by contributing to the sustainability of Canada’s health care system.
Through the ongoing research and development of innovative products, Canada’s medical technology industry develops innovations that are used in Canada and all over the world, while helping to drive a vitally important sector of our economy – providing well-paying jobs to over 35,000 Canadians.
MEDEC and our members work collaboratively with governments and our healthcare partners on initiatives to remove barriers to patient access to innovative new technologies and it’s clear that there’s increasingly greater recognition of the immense potential that the medical technology industry offers.
MEDEC is the national association created by and for the Canadian medical technology industry. MEDEC is the primary source for advocacy, information and education on the medical technology industry for members, the greater healthcare community, industry partners and the general public.
