Coworking Lab Space and Biotech Incubator in Toronto
Our JLABS @ Toronto story:
In May 2016, Toronto became the sixth JLABS site and the first to be located outside the U.S. Situated right in downtown Toronto within the MaRS Discovery District, North America’s largest urban innovation hub, JLABS @ Toronto is surrounded by researchers, investors, government and entrepreneurs, all supporting the advancement of healthcare innovation.
At JLABS we value great ideas and are passionate about removing obstacles to success. We help innovators unleash the potential of their early scientific discoveries, by:
- Providing you with state-of-the-art infrastructure (lab and offices) if needed
- Assigning you a mentor to help you on your journey and connect you to our network of professionals
- Giving you access to our investor community
- Offering you the training and skills you need

BLUE KNIGHT™ Residency
JLABS @ Toronto includes opportunities for BLUE KNIGHT™ residency. Blue Knight is a joint initiative between Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). The collaboration aims to stimulate the innovation and incubation of science and technologies that may improve health security and response by supporting companies focused on public health threats and emerging infectious diseases. Learn more about Blue Knight.
Every JLABS location features state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation and equipment—what new resident companies need to get up and running on day one.
This capital efficient model takes time and investment needed for laboratory space out of the equation, eliminating the normal setup typically required of a life science start-up. We even provide training on equipment like 3D printers, UPLCs, FPLCs, FACs, among others.
