Minister's message

Jean-Yves Duclos

On behalf of Health Canada, I am pleased to present the Departmental fees report for fiscal year 2020–21.

Throughout 2020-21, Health Canada implemented many measures to help lead a whole-of-government response to the COVID-19 pandemic. One such measure was the approval of several COVID-19 related Ministerial Orders. These Orders waived fees for applications and were key to allowing Health Canada to expedite the regulatory review and approval of personal protective equipment, drugs and medical devices needed by Canadians during the pandemic.

Effective April 1, 2020, as identified in last year's report, the majority of fees with respect to drugs and medical devices under the Financial Administration Act were repealed and set under the authority of the Food and Drugs Act. These fees are now regulated under the Fees in Respect of Drugs and Medical Devices Order, which include new fee mitigation measures for small businesses and penalty provisions related to service standards.

As per the Service Fees Act and the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, effective April 1, 2021, Health Canada implemented departmental and subordinate remission policies for fee regimes subject to the Service Fees Act (i.e.pesticides, hazardous materials and drug establishment licences - dealer's licences). These policies grant remissions to fee-payers for missed service standards.

Health Canada will continue to work towards continued transparency and accountability as it relates to fees. Through collaboration and evidence-based decision-making, I will continue to advance my key mandate priorities in order to maintain and improve the health and safety of all Canadians.

The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, P.C., M.P.
Minister of Health

About this report

This report, which is tabled under section 20 of the Service Fees Act, including the Low-Materiality Fees Regulations and subsection 4.2.8 of the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, contains information about the fees that Health Canada had the authority to set in 2020–21.Footnote 1

Government of Canada departments may set fees for services, licences, permits, products, the use of facilities, for other authorizations of rights or privileges, or to recover, in whole or in part, costs incurred in relation to a regulatory scheme.

For reporting purposes, fees must be categorized under the following three fee-setting mechanisms:

  1. Act, regulation or fees notice
    • An act of Parliament delegates the fee-setting authority to a department, minister or Governor in Council.
  2. Contract
    • Ministers have the authority to enter into contracts, which are usually negotiated between the minister and an individual or organization, and which cover fees and other terms and conditions. In some cases, that authority may also be provided by an act of Parliament.
  3. Market rate or auction
    • The authority to set these fees is pursuant to an act of Parliament or regulation, and the minister, department or Governor in Council has no control over the fee amount.

This report contains information about all fees that are under Health Canada's authority.

The information covers fees subject to the Service Fees Act and exempted from the Service Fees Act.

For fees set by act, regulation or fees notice, the report provides totals for fee groupings, as well as detailed information for each fee.

Although the fees that Health Canada charges under the Access to Information Act were subject to the Service Fees Act, they are not included in this report. Information on Health Canada's access to information fees for 2020–21 can be found in our access to information report, which is posted on our Web page: Reports and Publications - About Health Canada.

Remissions

This report does not include remissions issued under the authority of the Service Fees Act, since this requirement took effect on April 1, 2021. Remissions issued under the Service Fees Act will be reported for the first time, as applicable, in the 2021–22 Fees Report, which will be published in 2022–23.

The Service Fees Act requires departments to remit a fee, in part or in full, to a fee payer when a service standard is deemed not met. Under the Service Fees Act and the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, departments had to develop policies and procedures for determining:

The Health Canada remission policy and procedures were made available to the public as of April 1, 2021, and can be found on the following web page: Health Canada’s Remission Policy for Missed Service Standards.

The “Overall totals for 2020-21, by fee-setting mechanism” presents the total remissions by fee-setting mechanism. The “Total, by fee grouping, for fees set by act, regulation or fees notice” provides further details related to remissions that were issued under Health Canada’s enabling legislation in 2020-21.

In addition to remissions reported in the report, Health Canada did not charge cost recovery fees for application/licences submitted under various COVID-19 related Ministerial Orders as follows:

The Order Amending the Cannabis Fees Order (Extension of Deadline for Payment of 2020–2021 Annual Fee) provided short-term economic relief to the cannabis industry by deferring the annual fee payment due date from September 30, 2020 to March 31, 2021. Only revenues received by March 31, 2021 are being reported in 2020-21. The remaining outstanding revenues will be reported in 2021-22.

Remitted fees paid by certain stakeholders due to an oversight with how the Cannabis Fees Order was worded, which resulted in some otherwise eligible licence holders not qualifying for the exemption in the year they were first licenced to sell cannabis for medical purposes (Cannabis for Medical Purposes Remission Order).

Drug Establishment Licensing Fees

Any person in Canada must obtain a Drug Establishment Licence (DEL) if they are engaged in any of the six regulated activities (fabricate, import, distribute, wholesale, package/label, and test) with respect to human and/or veterinary drugs. A fee is charged for the examination of a DEL application, including all compliance and enforcement and supporting activities needed to ensure that the applicant/licence holder conforms to all regulatory requirements. The DEL fee is calculated on a per-site basis, therefore, the fee amount varies by application. A DEL fee is charged for the application for a new DEL, an annual licence review of a DEL, certain amendments to a DEL, reinstatement of a suspended DEL, or re-activation of a cancelled or withdrawn DEL.
