Helping Communities

At Pfizer Canada, we are proud to be active in the communities where we work and live with a focus that reflects our core belief that, to be truly healthy, it takes more than medication. Each year, Pfizer Canada partners with non-profit organizations across the country. We support Canadians in need through our patient assistance programs as well as international humanitarian missions and disaster relief efforts through our partnership with Health Partners International of Canada. Furthermore, many of our employees are also making a difference by volunteering their time to causes important to them. As a company we are, and will continue to be, committed to working together for a healthier world.

Here are some of our longest-standing partnerships:

Canadian Paralympic Committee

Proud premier partner since 1996, we take great pride in the athletes’ remarkable achievements, both at the Paralympic Games and at the game of life.

Centraide United Way
Partage Action

We give back to the communities where we live through our Annual Workplace Campaign.

Health Partners International of Canada

We provide access to medicines in vulnerable communities around the world through this partnership. In 2016, $1.2 million in medicines were donated.

Hope Air

We support the volunteers that help financially-disadvantaged Canadians get the healthcare they need.

West Island Palliative Care Residence

We support this residence, which allows terminally ill patients in Montreal to die in comfort and with dignity.

Give a Hand Day

We lend a hand to the community during our annual corporate volunteer day.

Pfizer Canada’s matching gifts program will match a portion of colleague donations to their registered charity/ charities of choice.
