Today’s pacemakers and insulin pumps might not be the same without the important contributions of Canadian doctors, scientists, and researchers. Medtronic, one of the largest medical technologies, services, and solutions companies in the world is celebrating Canada 150 by reflecting on these historic advancements, as well as several other Canadian innovations tied to Medtronic.
Medtronic was founded in 1949 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, by Earl E. Bakken and Palmer J. Hermundslie. Medtronic of Canada Ltd. was the first subsidiary of Medtronic outside the United States, operating in Vancouver, British Columbia as of August 1968. The Canadian head office was relocated to Ontario in 1974. Our Brampton, Ontario campus is now the Canadian Headquarters housing our training and education centre, sales, marketing, and administrative functions.
Medtronic employs over 1,600 people in Canada. It has a small regional office in Vancouver and a large regional office in Montreal, which serves as an extension of the head office. Over 900 of Medtronic's employees in Canada work at one of two manufacturing facilities in Pointe-Claire, Quebec and Gananoque, Ontario.
Medtronic's Brampton headquarters was designed according to Leadership in Energy Efficiency & Design (LEED) principles to provide an energy efficient work space using innovative, state of the art technology to reduce our impact on the environment.
