As of May 25, 2017

  • 1665 applications received

Each application undergoes a detailed assessment and review, including in-depth security checks undertaken by the RCMP.

Health Canada conducts compliance and monitoring activities of regulated parties to ensure compliance with the various regulations to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA). These activities include education, complaint investigations and inspecting licensed sites, or sites applying to be licensed to conduct regulated activities.
