ARCHIVED 1: List of drugs for exceptional importation and sale [2022-11-17 to 2022-12-22]
Drugs included on the list for exceptional importation and sale are called "designated drugs". They are eligible for exceptional importation and sale as per sections C.10.004 to C.10.011 of the Food and Drug Regulations. This list is incorporated by reference in these regulations. Health Canada maintains and updates this list as required.
Designated drugs are eligible for exceptional importation into Canada before the date listed in the "Date importation no longer allowed" column. Products cannot be exceptionally imported after this date, but products already imported may be sold until their expiry dates.
