As a global organization, we recognize the obligation to support the communities in which we live and work.
Through our collaboration with charitable organizations in Canada and around the globe, we further help by providing assistance to improve the wellbeing of those in need.
We have a longstanding commitment to the United Way. Over 24 years, our company has contributed more than $11 million, and are proud to be the largest donor in the Canadian pharmaceutical industry.
Apotex works with Health Partners Canada International (HPIC). HPIC’s goal is to increase access to medicine in vulnerable communities by working with partner agencies. In 2016, Apotex was recognized by HPIC as a Top Product Donor.
Apotex continually heeds the call for help when humanitarian crises occur. In 2016, $1.7 million of product was provided to the relief efforts in Ecuador following the earthquake that devastated certain parts of the country. In 2017, in the wake of devastating hurricanes, Apotex responded by donating more than $600,000 in product to Health Partners International Canada, Dispensary of Hope and Direct Relief to bring medicine to those affected.
We are committed to supporting the institutions where many of our customers and employees have studied. Since 2001, we have invested $23 million in universities across Canada. This is in addition to our APOcampus program, which provides the opportunity for students to join Apotex as a co-op, summer student, on a contract, or through an internship position.
We’re committed to responsibly sourcing products and services that have a reduced impact on the environment.
We’re consistently working to increase the acquisition of recycled/recyclable material and products whenever possible that reduce waste and conserve natural resources.
