For me, Shift Health is more than just a job, it is a second family. We learn together, grow together and have fun together. It is inspiring to work with people who share the same passion for science and consulting as I do. It is equally inspiring to work for a firm that is as committed and invested in my personal and professional growth as I am.

ADRIAN SNIHUR Senior Director, Consulting

Working at Shift Health has allowed me to work on a diverse set of projects with a wide range of stakeholders working within the health research and innovation ecosystem. Each project comes with its own set of considerations and challenges which pushes you to find new and creative ways to approach the problems you are presented with.


I appreciate working for an organization that is continuously reflecting on how we can embed inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility into our culture and workspaces to improve employee experience and wellbeing.

Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Accessibility

We are committed to building an inclusive work environment and a health research and innovation ecosystem rooted in the principles of inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA).

Building an inclusive work environment

Committing to impact

Leading our sector as an IDEA advocate and advisor

We are deeply committed to cultivating an inclusive work environment where we are all comfortable bringing our full selves to work, feel welcome to engage each other intellectually and can count on each other for support. We continually work to optimize our recruitment, retention and promotion practices through the lens of IDEA.
We are proud to join the growing list of organizations that have committed to gender parity and significant representation of under-represented groups within their boards and senior management teams by embracing the Government of Canada’s 50-30 Challenge. As an active member of the BlackNorth Initiative, we have signed the CEO Pledge to remove anti-Black systemic barriers negatively affecting the lives of Black Canadians. We are also helping to develop the next generation of scientific experts through our partnership with Visions of Science.

Through our work with clients, our thought leadership and our volunteer work with partners across the health research and innovation ecosystem, we advocate for the importance of IDEA and advise on how to meaningfully embed IDEA within their organizations. Some of our community efforts to embed IDEA within the health research and innovation ecosystem include Building an Inclusive Life Sciences Future (BILSF) and Inclusive Life Sciences Collaboration (ILSC).

We are thrilled to announce that BioTalent Canada has named Shift Health a 2022-2023 I.D.E.A.L. Bioscience Employer™

We have received this honour for demonstrating inclusivity, diversity, equity and accessibility leadership and for embodying the diverse and inclusive corporate principles needed to promote growth and success.
