Report an adverse reaction to a drug: hospital
There are new mandatory reporting requirements for hospitals. Hospitals must report, in writing, within 30 days of documenting the serious adverse drug reaction within the facility. We encourage hospitals to report sooner, if possible.
Health care professionals who work in a hospital should check with their hospital administration to learn about any new requirements.
Please download the form to your desktop before filling out.
To report through the secure File Transfer Protocol (sFTP), contact the Canada Vigilance Program.
