With its principles of customer service, integrity and excellence, it has been named the Company of the Year within the Canadian healthcare sector in the recent past.

There have been many exciting developments as this company continues to expand. In 2012, it completed a major acquisition of Drug Trading and Medicine Shoppe Canada, representing over 1000 independent and franchise pharmacies operating in Ontario, Western and Atlantic Canada. With an established Legal Group of 6 lawyers in Montreal, this expansion has generated a need for legal counsel in Ontario. Located in Brampton, this position will report to the Vice President, Legal Affairs, in Montreal.

The ideal candidate will have 10-12 years of corporate / commercial experience gained from private practice or in house.
