CAPDM is pleased to announce the 2020
Virtual Member Forum Business Session
September 15th from 1:00-3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.
Bill Dempster develops and implements high-impact government relations, policy, and business strategies for the health and life sciences sector. Bill will harness his experience leading federal, national, and provincial campaigns to share his perspectives on the state of health and pharmaceutical policy in Canada, during these challenging times. Topics that will be covered during this engaging session with members will include:
- The political and fiscal challenges facing Canadian governments and health systems
- A review of key policy issues and a consideration of what might be next as we close out 2020 and beyond
- Considerations for where we, as the custodians of the medicine supply chain, play a role in supporting the economic and health system recovery that Canada requires now to prosper
For almost twenty years, Bill has drawn on deep business, legal and government experience to find beneficial solutions to complex regulatory, reimbursement and policy problems. Bill has previously worked for Pfizer Canada, a Member of Parliament, the United Nations, and major Canadian law firms. He is fluently bilingual, and has degrees in history (King's College, University of Western Ontario), law (Queen's University), and a Master of Arts in international affairs (Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University). Bill was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2002.
