Health Canada is proposing changes to its fee structure associated with Health Canada's post-market regulatory activities with respect to pesticides (in other words, the annual charge).

The proposed changes are being brought forward to more accurately reflect the costs for Health Canada's regulatory activities on pesticides, while also ensuring that appropriate mitigation measures are in place to minimize the economic burden on small businesses and enable continued access to certain pesticides.

How to get involved

Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) invites the public, stakeholders, and partners to submit written comments on the proposal to update fees for pest control products.

This consultation is available for comment for 60 calendar days from the date of publication, with a closure of the comment period on 31 March 2024. Open the "Consultation Document " link to access the document.

If you would like to comment, see the Pest Management Regulatory Agency Publications Section  page to submit your comments using our online consultation comment form or for contact information to submit your comments by email or mail. Please be sure to include the title of the consultation document on which you are commenting.

Reporting to Canadians

The feedback received will be considered as Health Canada refines its fee proposal. It will then be published in Canada Gazette, Part I in anticipation of a formal consultation on regulatory amendments to the Pest Control Products Fees and Charges Regulations. Final regulations will then be published in Canada Gazette, Part II.
