Working in the Community


Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is core to Sanofi’s business as a healthcare leader in Canada.
Our community activities, often enhanced by the direct involvement of our employees, support research, promote health and well-being, and create public awareness of disease prevention and treatment. Learn about some of our key initiatives below.
Biogenius Canada

Sanofi Biogenius Canada

A national science research competition open to high school students, Sanofi Biogenius Canada has helped over 6,000 young Canadians pursue real-world scientific research projects since its inaugural edition in 1993.

For many participants, SBC has proven vastly influential in mapping out future careers – in some cases paving the way for studies in Ivy League schools and exciting internships in the biotech industry. Sanofi Canada is been title sponsor and strong supporter of SBC since the competition’s founding.

Sanofi Espoir Foundation

The Sanofi Espoir Foundation develops prevention and access-to-care programs tailored to local realities. Each project is designed to scale up and lead to economically sustainable health solutions, wherever the needs are felt.

The Foundation naturally responds to humanitarian emergencies, but focuses primarily on long-term partnerships to act on such recurrent issues as education and prevention, training and access to care.
