Paediatric Expert Advisory Committee

The Paediatric Expert Advisory Committee was formed in 2009 to provide a way for Health Canada to seek expert advice and public involvement in the development, licensing and continued vigilance for health products - pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biologics including vaccines and natural health products - on the market destined for children, and pregnant and nursing women.

The Committee also provides input to Health Canada on food safety and nutrition standards specific to these populations, as well as on the information the Department provides to assist Canadians in making healthy food choices.

Membership covers a range of expertise and disciplines including paediatric specialists, university professors, pharmacists, and researchers, as well as representation from industry and patient groups, not-for-profit organizations, and parents.

The 15-member Committee contributes to the involvement of the public, providing a forum to have your views considered by experts.
