Areas for feedback
Through this consultation, Health Canada is seeking stakeholder perspectives on:
- proposed fee structure and fee amounts
- proposed service standards and penalties for missed standards
- proposed mitigation measures, including small businesses
- proposed timeline for implementation (April 1, 2025)
- other concerns related to the fee proposal
The fee proposal is subject to a 75-day consultation period. The feedback received will be used to refine the proposal as we seek to implement fees that reflect the NHP program in a fair and transparent way. The fee proposal will then be finalized, and a fee order will be published in Canada Gazette, Part II.
