Canadian Life Sciences Networks

How do other Canadian pharmaceutical companies do it?

Answering this simple question is our mission.

A powerful partnership has brought together MATRIX Healthcare’s deep expertise in the Canadian pharmaceutical market and TGaS® Advisors’ industry leading benchmarking and network facilitation capabilities. With a roster of most of the top 50 pharma companies, along with a growing network of emerging and pre-commercial life sciences companies, TGaS has been providing robust comparative intelligence and collaborative network membership services in the US for nearly 15 years. Relying on 50+ years of Canadian pharma experience, MATRIX professionals have supported 14 clients with 100+ engagements over 3 years.

Together, we are creating the Canadian Life Sciences Networks (CLSN) to help answer the question, “How do other Canadian pharmaceutical companies do it” for key functional areas. Our goal—to increase the impact of key functions by providing a fact-based, outside-in perspective; actionable, practical, unbiased advice; and ongoing access to an unrivalled network of peers.

We help pharma leaders answer the big questions.

  • What does good look like?
  • Where do we stand vis-à-vis our peers
  • How can we transform our organization to meet our needs today and in the future?
  • What levels and allocation of investment are required to attain good, better, best?

The Benefit—Better Business Results.
