Sanofi Pasteur LogoSanofi Pasteur Limited has a long history of supporting science education at the post-secondary level. In 1994, we recognized the need to engage younger students in biotechnology education, and the initial SABC program was run in conjunction with the Biotechnology Industry Organization’s first meeting in Canada. Since then, the program has expanded from Toronto to 13 events across Canada and has involved thousands of students. As lead sponsor of the SABC, Sanofi Pasteur is proud to collaborate with partners in government, industry and academia to get high school students engaged in biotechnology.

Sanofi Pasteur Limited is Canada’s only full-scale vaccine company. We research, develop and manufacture a broad range of human vaccines right here in Canada. With over 1,000 highly-skilled employees, we are one of Canada’s oldest and largest biotech companies. (www.sanofi-pasteur.ca)
