Ethics & transparency

At Medicago, we are committed to upholding and conducting business ethically and transparently. In alignment with our values, every employee acts with the highest integrity and accountability. We expect it from each other and those with whom we collaborate.

As members of Canada’s pharmaceutical industry association, Innovative Medicines Canada, we take to heart the Code of Ethical Practices, along with our company policies and procedures, as they are designed to foster ethical business conduct in our daily interactions with each other, our stakeholders, and the public.

Relationship with healthcare community

We believe that ethical and transparent interactions are paramount to the strength of the healthcare community. We commit to engaging with healthcare professionals on new data about our products, our plant-based technology, and clinical trials in an appropriate and accurate manner in order to improve global health.

Reporting violations

At Medicago, we encourage our employees to report any complaints or violations through a dedicated hotline. Our non-retaliation policy protects employees from fear of retaliation. All allegations, whether actual or suspected, are investigated and action taken as appropriate.
