At Merck, we are inspired by the difference we can make in the lives of Canadians through the innovative medicines, vaccines, consumer and animal health products we discover and produce.
In Canada, we market more than 530 products in a broad range of areas such as cardiology, infectious diseases, respiratory, vaccines, women's health and sun care, and are focused on expanding offerings in other areas, including virology, oncology and diabetes.
Based in Montréal, Québec, Merck employs more than 1400 people across Canada. Our manufacturing facility in Québec has been designated by our parent company as a Centre of Excellence for the global production of liquids, ointments and creams.
As one of the top R&D investors in Canada, with investments totalling $78.6 million in 2010, we are doing more of what we're passionate about: working to ensure a healthier future for all – one person at a time.
The past few years have brought great change to the way we do things at Merck. However, no matter how we change and grow, the core of who we are will always remain the same.
