Pfizer Canada strives to profoundly impact the health of Canadians. Research and development are at the heart of fulfilling Pfizer's purpose as we work to translate advanced science and technologies into the therapies that matter most. Our diverse portfolio offers a broad range of options to meet the needs of Canadians. Our goal is to ensure that all patients have timely access to the treatments they need. We are one of the largest biopharmaceutical companies in Canada but we realize that we cannot do this alone. Partnerships and alliances are needed to further scientific advancements that will help benefit Canadian patients. Our approach is to collaborate in new and dynamic ways with academic scientists, patient advocacy groups, governments, other biopharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals.
Through partnerships and alliances, we are focused on being a meaningful contributor to Canada’s life sciences sector.
