The way we do business
As Canada's food and pharmacy leader, we create positive environmental and social change. Here's how we're addressing the issues that matter most to Canadians.
Our commitment to Indigenous peoples
We are a proud Canadian company, and we understand and acknowledge this country’s past and ongoing challenges, and our relationship with the Indigenous peoples who called Canada home long before us. The confirmation of children who were taken from their families and lost their lives in the residential school system, and stories told by survivors, leaves us with heavy hearts and a greater urgency to strengthen our commitment to truth and reconciliation.

We’re still standing with the Black community
It has been one year since the world witnessed the murder of George Floyd and, like many, we were relieved to see accountability and justice served. Unfortunately, that is often not the case, and Black lives continue to be impacted. Last year, Galen made a promise that as a company we would continue to help create systemic change. We’ve been listening. We’ve been learning – and unlearning. And we’ve been taking action.
