Roche Pharma Canada Insights
At Roche, our primary objective is to provide healthcare solutions that deliver superior options for diagnosis and treatment to clinicians and patients. As one of the world's leading healthcare companies with combined strengths in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, no company is better suited for this task.
Here in Canada, Roche stands out as a leader in clinical trial recruitment, accounting for 6% of Roche's global clinical research spending. We have maintained a number one ranking for hospital pharmaceutical sales in Canada, and are among the top 10 companies in total pharmaceutical sales. Roche Pharma has its office in Mississauga, Ontario and employs over 850 employees.
In 2011, Roche Pharmaceuticals announced a significant expansion with the introduction of a Global Pharmaceutical Development site, which plays a leadership role in worldwide clinical trials. The project involved an investment by Roche of more than $190 million in Ontario, and has resulted in a growth from about 70 to over 250 people in Pharmaceutical Development since the announcement. The expansion project was supported by a $7.79 million investment from the Government of Ontario, and reflects the shared commitment of Roche and the Government of Ontario to build long-term prosperity and international leadership in life sciences and biopharmaceuticals in the province.
The Mississauga facility is bright, vibrant, fosters collaboration and teamwork, and is reflective of Roche's truly innovative culture. Our office-based employees enjoy a modern cafeteria, outside patio, on-site gym, free parking and much more.
Mississauga is the sixth largest city in Canada and is part of the third largest biotechnology cluster in North America.
