(TLN) Mayor Marc Demers, accompanied by several members of city council and staffers from Laval’s economic development team, spent some time last week at Dynacare, a diagnostic and medical tracking company that has branches all over Canada.

Dynacare Laval general manager Yvan Côté and Scott Hickey from Headquarters in Brampton, ON gave the mayor and his entourage a tour of Dynacare’s facilities, including the laboratories and the client service centre.

Discussions were also held on issues concerning the business and innovation in the field of sciences in Laval. Dynacare employs more than 60 people in its Laval lab, as well as at its three testing facilities.

The company evolved into its current incorporation partly as a result of its acquisition of Warnex, another company that started in Laval thanks to the support of the centre québécois d’innovation en biotechnologie (CQIB), located at the Cité de la Biotech.
