External Advisory Bodies
Health Canada seeks information and advice in a number of situations from a variety of individuals, organizations, agencies, and governments. One way that Health Canada seeks expert advice is through the use of an external advisory body. These external advisory bodies are composed of members who are outside of the federal government, appointed to reflect a range of relevant knowledge, expertise, and experience.
Health Canada has established a number of external advisory bodies that advise the department in various ways outlined in their terms of reference. The following is a list of Health Canada's external advisory bodies.
The Health Canada Policy on External Advisory Bodies (2011) is intended to provide direction to those managing external advisory bodies and using their advice, while providing stakeholders and members of the public with accessible information on what to expect when the Department seeks advice from an external advisory body.
