Pharmascience’s story is one of remarkable growth. From its modest start-up by two Montreal pharmacists and a R&D team of five, Pharmascience has expanded over three decades to 1,500 employees through organic growth and acquisitions. Our first Montreal drug manufacturing facility has evolved into three major centres of production and distribution excellence. As a result, we have quickly become one of Canada’s main pharmaceutical employers, manufacturers, R&D investors, and exporters.
