About CAN Health Network

The Coordinated Accessible National (CAN) Health Network (CHN) coordinates health care providers from across the country into an integrated marketplace – a first for Canada. CHN is a national partnership comprised of leading Canadian health organizations, referred to as Edges, and promising companies across Canada. Made possible with funding from the Federal Government, the Network works together to introduce new solutions into the health care system and pave the way for Canadian businesses to scale not only across Canada, but globally.

When united, Canada’s 13 provinces and territories become a competitive advantage for Canada. By pairing health care providers with Canadian entrepreneurs, CHN breaks down procurement barriers and de-risks technology adoption. The results: better tools in health care, improved patient outcomes, more jobs at home, and the opportunity to drive economic prosperity.

Our Mission: To bring Canada together to create economic prosperity and better health for all.
