Lilly is


more than creating medicines

Lilly Culture

Lilly makes medicines that help people live longer, healthier, more active lives.

Lilly Canada was founded in 1938, and has since grown into a leading research-based pharmaceutical company. Eli Lilly Canada built its first facility in 1946 and the Canadian headquarters are still located on this site in Toronto, Ontario. Today, the company employs more than 550 people across the country.

We have been recognized as one of the best companies to work for in Canada on numerous occasions and generations of Lilly employees have sustained a culture that values excellence, integrity and respect for people.

Globally, Eli Lilly and Company employs approximately 38,000 people and markets medicines in 125 countries. With major Research and Development facilities in eight countries and clinical trials ongoing in more than 55 countries, Lilly’s work continues to break new ground, placing it on the leading edge in many of today’s most important areas of health care research.
