Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, we’ve been recognized as one of Greater Toronto Area’s Top Employers for five straight years. Our collaborative work environment fosters knowledge-sharing, decision-making, and entrepreneurial thinking. Our employees have the opportunity to work across teams, functions, and even the globe. With a commitment to sustainability, we’re working towards making our head office and internal and external meetings green. And we take the time to celebrate success as a team, with #flashthanks recognition events, our annual cultural celebration, great speakers and much more.
What we offer
It’s in our nature to be curious about what medicine can do – now and in the future. This curiosity fuels our research and helps patients to improve their lives every day. Your curiosity, passion and entrepreneurial mindset are key to our shared success. We believe we are at our best, when you are at yours. That’s why we offer an empowering, supportive culture, world-class growth and development opportunities, as well as industry-leading benefits.
We believe that when you thrive, so do we. That’s why we’ve introduced better, more holistic benefits, and have company-wide policies regarding work-life balance and health leave. At AstraZeneca Canada, our employees and their families also have access to great resources, such as LifeSpeak, a comprehensive online wellness and development platform, and Best Doctors – offering information, support and access to top medical experts.
Supporting the whole-self is critical to helping people truly flourish. Alongside our global benefits, in Canada, we offer a range of extras that show how much we value you and the big moments in your life. From improved maternity, parental and adoption leave, to increased paid bereavement days, and our new 12-week top-up for compassionate and critical illness leave, we look after our people. We’ve even doubled the amount of support we provide for tuition assistance.
Our competitive retirement savings programs and policies reflect both our commitment to the health and wellbeing of employees, and our strong support of balanced living. You choose the level of coverage, with generous employer credits provided, as well as employer match to employee Retirement Savings contributions.

Our dynamic culture truly sets us apart. Thrive@AZ, our platform to best support our people, focuses on three priorities: employee growth & development, health & wellbeing, and cultivating a vibrant, engaged and energised workplace.
