Leading Canadian pharmaceutical company sets up shop in Burlington

EmpowerPharm Inc. is a Canadian pharmaceutical company that has been developing prescription CBD tablets to the highest quality standard. Empower CBD™, a first-of-its-kind prescription tablet containing synthetic CBD to treat anxiety without the serious potential side-effects associated with some current prescription drugs.

Situated in Burlington since 2018, EmpowerPharm chose Burlington because of the lower cost for industrial real estate and development compared to Toronto and its conveniently location close to southern-Ontario’s biggest cities and international airport.

Recently EmpowerPharm completed construction what is the first Canadian GMP-compliant facility for the manufacture of pharmaceutical CBD. This facility is awaiting inspection from Health Canada as the company is required to obtain a Drug Establishment License (DEL).

With Burlington’s access to great education, green space, safe neighbourhoods, vibrant restaurant & retail scenes and a beautiful waterfront, the city has been the perfect place employees and the company as whole. 

“Burlington City Council works quickly and efficiently to provide permits and other supports for businesses.”
