Shoppers Drug Mart, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Loblaw Companies Limited
and forming part of the Loblaw group of companies, is Canada’s leading drug
store retailer with more than 1,300 pharmacist-owned locations from coast to
coast. Founded in 1962, this is a brand that is synonymous with exceptional
service, value and trust. The Company also licenses or owns more than
49 medical clinic pharmacies operating under the name Shoppers Simply
Pharmacy® (Pharmaprix Simplement Santé® in Québec) and 56 Shoppers Home
Health Care locations.
Shoppers Drug Mart continues to expand its reach and innovate in order to
ensure it is providing its customers with the best service and products. The legal
team plays an integral role in this growth, supporting the pharmaceutical, health
care and cannabis businesses on corporate / commercial matters and M&A
transactions. As well, it advises on regulatory matters and oversees pharmacy
acquisitions. It is now looking to build up its legal team, seeking a lawyer to work
out of its Toronto head office in North York.
The successful candidate will have 3-5 years of M&A / corporate commercial
experience gained in a large firm or corporation. Any experience with
pharmaceutical/health care law and experience working with regulations will be of
interest but not mandatory. It would also be helpful if the candidate has both civil
and common law degrees and is bilingual (English / French) as there will be regular
interaction with our client’s Quebec operations team. This position will report to
the Senior Vice-President and General Counsel of Shoppers Drug Mart.
Being a quick study and possessing the ability to build productive business
relationships with the business groups will be important as the successful candidate
will be working closely with various business teams. Shoppers Drug Mart not only
offers an opportunity to be part of a retail leader in its industry, but also access to
long term career growth opportunities within the Loblaw group of companies. If
