ADVANCING HEALTH AND WELLNESS IN CANADA
With nearly 1,500 employees between our headquarters in Montreal and Toronto, our Point of Care plant in Ottawa and a lactulose manufacturing plant in Victoriaville, Abbott in Canada reflects our dedication to manufacturing the highest-quality products and finding lasting solutions to the unique health challenges facing the country.
INVESTING IN SCIENCE AND INNOVATION
Whether we’re developing diagnostic tests so local patients can benefit from the latest treatments or revolutionizing the way people monitor their glucose, we’re at the forefront of science and innovation in everything we do.
PROVIDING WORLD-CLASS PRODUCTS
Abbott offers an array of leading products in Canada to help people live healthier, fuller lives.
We understand that proper nutrition is the foundation for living the best life possible. Abbott Nutrition is also passionate about tackling malnutrition. That’s why we develop science-based nutrition products for people of all ages. We are behind some of the world's most trusted names in pediatric, adult and healthy living nutritional products, including Similac®, Pediasure®, Pedialyte®, Ensure® and Glucerna®. In addition to these well-known consumer brands, Abbott also offers specialized medical nutritional products for patients with special dietary needs due to food allergies or gastrointestinal impairment, injury or illnesses such as cancer.
Diagnostic Instruments and Tests
Diagnostic testing is a compass, providing information that helps in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a range of health conditions. Our medical diagnostic instruments and tests are used worldwide in hospitals, reference labs and blood banks to diagnose serious health issues, such as infectious diseases, cancer, diabetes and genetic conditions. Our core laboratory diagnostics business is helping to transform health care around the world through innovative instrument platforms, tests and services. Our molecular diagnostics products help physicians detect genetic mutations in patients' genes and chromosomes to diagnose and manage disease. And our point-of-care diagnostic technologies bring diagnostics directly to patients by performing many of the most commonly ordered blood tests at the bedside, using a few drops of blood.
Leading an active lifestyle is important to the many people we serve. We're revolutionizing medical technology to help people manage their diabetes better and return to a more active life after being treated for heart disease. Whether it’s glucose monitoring systems or an innovative dissolving stent for the heart, our advanced medical device technologies are designed to help people live their lives better and healthier.
SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY
We’re dedicated to making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work, through partnerships that promote better quality of life for people across Canada.
