Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

This advanced webinar will offer guidance for all companies involved in the manufacture, advertising and sale of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and natural health products (including external advisors and consultants) that do business, or want to do business, in Canada.

These companies should be aware of Health Canada’s approach to enforcement, and the penalties for being found offside Canadian rules and regulations so appropriate business decisions can be made. With the introduction of Vanessa’s law in late 2014, the landscape has changed significantly. There is now the possibility of significantly higher penalties and other enforcement measures, including the disclosure of confidential business information.

An error can be costly: Health Canada’s enforcement provisions include the ability to impose strict penalties and jail time (higher now, with the introduction of Vanessa’s law), order a stop sale and/or product recall. This course will illustrate why the cost of doing business is becoming increasingly high and why it is essential for businesses to be aware of the rules of the game.
