Improving the regulatory review of drugs and devices – stakeholder meetings and engagement activities

In keeping with our commitment to openness and transparency, a notice was posted to inform stakeholders on how Health Canada will handle meeting and correspondence information for specific initiatives, including Improving the regulatory review of drugs and devices. The table below lists meetings between Health Canada officials and stakeholders from August 1, 2018 until the end of the initiative in 2021. The documents listed in the table are available to members of the public upon request, for the sole purpose of ensuring greater transparency. If a Health Canada document is listed in English only and you would like it in French, please indicate this in your request. The disclosures made as part of this new policy are not part of the consultation process. Health Canada is therefore not seeking any feedback on any of these documents. To request a copy of specific documents, send your request by email, citing the meeting number.

Please note that some of the documents, hyperlinks or information in the table were provided or submitted to us as a courtesy by an individual or organization not subject to the Official Languages Act and, as such, are presented here in the official language in which they were submitted.

Oral or written communications for the purpose of making simple enquiries or requests for information that do not have any relevance, in Health Canada's view, to the development of policies, regulations or guidance related to improving the regulatory review of drugs and devices will not be published. Learn more about how Health Canada makes information, data, publications and reports available to Canadians.
