Mission, Vision, and Motto


The Patented Medicine Prices Review Board is a respected public agency that makes a unique and valued contribution to sustainable spending on pharmaceuticals in Canada by:

  • providing stakeholders with price, cost, and utilization information to help them make timely and knowledgeable drug pricing, purchasing, and reimbursement decisions;
  • acting as an effective check on the patent rights of pharmaceutical manufacturers through the responsible and efficient use of its consumer protection powers


A sustainable pharmaceutical system where payers have the information they need to make smart reimbursement choices and Canadians can afford the patented drugs they need to live healthy and productive lives.


Protect, Empower, Adapt.
