Lilly Canada is moving

to downtown Toronto in the early fall of 2019

After more than 70 years at the corner of Birchmount Rd. and Danforth Ave., Lilly Canada will soon move back to downtown Toronto. We decided to move in order to be closer to our collaborators of the past and the future, and to move into a purpose-built office that fits our current size while providing flexibility for us to grow.

Our new workspace will mirror the drive, spirit, energy and diversity of our people. It will reflect Lilly’s innovative, collaborative culture, and our reputation as a leader in the knowledge and innovation economy.

Lilly Canada was founded in 1938 as a result of a collaboration between Lilly and Banting and Best, which produced the world’s first commercially available insulin. Ever since, we have worked hard to make life better for people by delivering innovative medicines in areas such as oncology, diabetes, autoimmunity, neurodegeneration and pain.

We have made decades of memories in Scarborough, so it is with mixed emotions that we make this transition. It has been an honour to be a part of the community. As we look to the future, we are very excited about this next stage in our company’s history.
