The potential for job creation and development in this sector is very high. With the increase in the number of people moving to Canada and the rest of the world for work and educational opportunities, Canada has become an attractive place to be in, other words it has become a mecca for pharmaceutical engineers.

However, when done right and with a good deal of negotiating skill, joint venture opportunities can actually prove to be quite profitable for both parties.
