Health Canada Public Consultation: Exceptions to the Prescription Drug List

Health Canada Public Consultation: Exceptions to the Prescription Drug List

Health Canada has launched an initial consultation to gather input from health care providers, industry, and other stakeholders about exceptions to the Prescription Drug List. 

Exceptions are intended for when a drug meets one or more of the prescription drug principles and factors, but a health and safety rationale for easier access outweighs the benefits of the prescription requirements.

This consultation launched on July 28, 2022, and will close on November 29, 2022.
