These seminars are only open to brand pharmaceutical manufacturers and the content is dedicated exclusively to Canadian private payer market issues. Over the past 3 years, these seminars have developed into the industry's most comprehensive and most in-depth reviews of current issues and policy developments in the private payer market. We help you to understand the relative importance of market developments and we always answer the "So what?" question. These are advanced sessions that require registrants to have more than a Private Payer 101 baseline level of knowledge.

In addition, we are pleased to announce that we will have at least two guest speakers at each session. For both Toronto and Montreal, François-Joseph Poirier will be presenting on Mercer's 2nd Annual Drug Plan Survey. Additional speakers will be announced in the near future.

These seminars are very well attended (representation by more than 20 brand pharmaceutical manufacturers at each event in the past) so we encourage you to block off these dates in your calendar and register as soon as possible. Please click on the links above to see the agendas and to follow the registration instructions.

Note: If your company is registering 3 or more people between both Toronto and Montréal events, please contact Corinne Razem at (905) 393-3597 or crazem@mapol.ca for a group discount code.
