01.OUR STORY

THE PHARMASCIENCE EVOLUTION

Pharmascience was founded in 1983 in Montreal by two local pharmacists who started out with a team of just five research and development (R&D) employees. Fast-forward to today and we're one of Canada's pharmaceutical companies, with a growing team of 1,500-plus staff dedicated to manufacturing, marketing and distributing a diverse range of high-quality medicines throughout Canada and across the globe.

Our state-of-the-art R&D and production facilities are located in Montreal, serving a client base that includes pharmacists, doctors, drug wholesalers and major retailers. We invest more than $44 million in R&D every year, to make sure we stay ahead of the latest trends and technologies and deliver top-quality products and services to our customers.
