finalized an agreement with Oakville-based BFI in the fall of 2007, sighting
BioPed's proven ability to enhance patient services with a wide range of
education materials, broader access to footwear, lower leg bracing products
and continuing education for Canadian Certified Pedorthists. Speaking on
behalf of BioPed Moncton, Bujold further explains, "Increasing demand for
pedorthic services, makes this an exciting time to bring all these assets to
