 History 

Health Innovation and Economic Development Inc. (OHI) is a not-for-profit chartiable organization in partnership with the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce (SCC).  It is spearheaded by passionate staff and volunteers who serve the health market.  OHI sprouted from the tremendous work spanning almost 20 years of the Health Opportunities Committee of the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce.   OHI affiliation with a provincial body, such as the SCC strengthens the reach and breadth, allowing the mission to reach new heights in promoting a culture of health innovation in Saskatchewan.

Knowledge economy can fuel innovation that supports the growth and prosperity of industries.  Creating new products/services or improving on existing products/services; new methods of production or process; opening new markets; utilising a new source of supply to create products or services and/or restructuring/disrupting existing industries.

Many of these innovations are created, developed and commercialized by young and emerging companies. A rich fertile soil combined with the right nutrients, these companies can thrive.
