The regulation of drugs is undergoing rapid worldwide change in response to the advances in pharmaceutical sciences, drug development, and changes in public expectations. To ensure that Health Canada is capable of maintaining and enhancing its reputation as a science-based and reliable regulator, the Progressive Licensing Project was initiated to develop a drug regulatory system for the future.
The Progressive Licensing Project is an initiative of the Blueprint for Renewal, a long-term policy framework that will help inform the development and implementation of a plan to improve the drug regulatory system.
This Web site details the plan for developing a new framework, and provides an opportunity for discussion with Canadians regarding drug licensing. As development continues, the Web site will grow with the addition of more details about specific issues, results of stakeholder interaction, and ultimately a new proposed regulatory framework.
The following sections of the Web site provide material to enable stakeholders to develop an understanding of the current drug licensing system, explore specific issues, and provide comments on the proposed concepts of a new framework. In addition, a concept paper that articulates the project and its vision has been created.
