AstraZeneca in the Community

At AstraZeneca, we strive to make a positive contribution to our local communities through sponsorships, partnerships, charitable donations and other initiatives that help to make a difference. Our activities to improve the health and quality of life for Canadians are focused on bringing sustainable benefit and working in partnership with community organizations.

We support a wide range of not-for-profit organizations, with a particular focus on the health and well-being of vulnerable youth. Through our Young Health Program, we aim to improve the mental and emotional well-being of disconnected and vulnerable youth aged 10 to 19.  We also proudly support the giving and volunteer efforts of our employees across Canada who donate thousands of hours and dollars to strengthen their communities.

We work closely with our stakeholders – health professionals, community and charitable organizations, suppliers, government and other groups who share our commitment to the health of Canadians – in order to ensure our decision-making is consistent with our program goals.  We are a member of LBG Canada, a group of companies seeking to maximize the impact of community investment by setting the standard for reporting in Canada.  In addition, we report annually to the Rx&D Community Support Database and are proud to be recognized as an Imagine Caring Company.
