At Purdue Pharma (Canada), we embrace our Mission of developing and providing innovative medicines for patients and health care professionals and of supporting quality education for the safe use of our products. And we’re proud to have the capability to discover, develop, make and commercialize innovative products for Canadians right here at the City of Pickering. In fact, approved prescription treatments for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) were developed here and we currently formulate and package both prescription and over-the-counter products in our Pickering facility.

We also support the development of ideas and the advancement of innovations through local partnerships such as with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. The university’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition challenges students in the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies to quickly explain their research and convey its wider impact to a panel of non-specialist judges.

Working at Purdue Pharma (Canada) offers the opportunity to participate in the earliest stages of product development and provide a broad variety of business-building opportunities from both national and worldwide sources. Our employees can expect a work environment that focuses on their health and wellness, while providing opportunities to grow, learn, be engaged and fulfilled while also making a positive difference. We believe we have a role to play in the health of our communities beyond providing innovative medicines. And we demonstrate that through our support of various community organizations including The United Way of Durham, Station Gallery and Room 217. Our employees know that whether they bottle liquids, quality test tablets, develop new molecules, commercialize our consumer products, or pursue product approvals and reimbursement, we must each continue to do the right thing in every decision we make, every action we take, every day.
