AstraZeneca is a science-led biopharmaceutical company pushing the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines.
The company employs roughly 900 people in Canada who work to research, develop and market innovative medicines. AstraZeneca Canada was recently designated a global Clinical Hub for oncology and immuno-oncology clinical studies. We are currently leading global oncology clinical studies in lung, head and neck cancer.
The future of treatment for many of today’s diseases lies in uncovering mechanisms that are newly emerging or are still to be discovered. We believe the best way to help patients is to focus on breakthrough science to discover these mechanisms and develop novel, targeted therapies that interact with them. Our focus is on the following core therapy areas: Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolic diseases (CVRM); Oncology; and Respiratory & Immunology.
In 2019, AstraZeneca invested more than $145 million in Canadian health sciences research in our core therapy areas.
AstraZeneca Canada was named one of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Cultures in 2020 by Waterstone Human Capital – a national award that recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations with a commitment to strong and vibrant corporate cultures anchored to their people and values. The company was also recognized as being one of the top employers in the Greater Toronto Area – the seventh consecutive year AstraZeneca has received a Greater Toronto Top Employer Award. https://www.astrazeneca.ca/en
