Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety Program

Health Canada regulates a diverse range of products.  These currently include but are not limited to

·         Food

·         Drugs

·         Cosmetics

·         Infant toys  

If you import any product that is regulated please be aware that in the very near future your customs broker will be required to submit additional information. 

We have also been advised that Health Canada is phasing out all of their PDF forms and is changing over exclusively to HTML so you will need to update your forms as soon as possible. 

Health Canada Responsibilities;                              

·         Health Products   (example: medical devices, natural health products)                                

·         Consumer Products   (example: cosmetics, sunscreen, infant furniture and toys)                     

·         Controlled Drugs                                

·         Radiation-emitting devices              

·         Pesticides

·         Pathogens and Toxins  

We have been advised that Health Canada has plans to add appliances such as kitchen appliances, heating and cooling products and laundry and cleaning appliances to their list of regulated goods.
