Compliance and Enforcement Report: Cannabis Inspection Data Summary 2020-2021

Table of Contents

Overview

In order to support the government's response during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure the health and safety of Canadians, Health Canada temporarily adjusted its approach to the administration and enforcement of the Cannabis Act and its regulations. The department continued to maintain and used its ability to conduct inspections in accordance with the cannabis program's risk-based approach and focused on activities that represented the highest risk to public health and public safety. The program adapted its approach to conduct offsite and hybrid inspections, while onsite planned inspections, including inspections of registered personal and designated production of cannabis for medical purposes, were temporarily postponed due to public health measures and restrictions across the country. These onsite planned inspections were resumed in fiscal year 2021-22. Health Canada continues to strengthen its oversight to reduce the misuse of the cannabis for medical purposes framework, while maintaining reasonable access to cannabis for medical purposes for Canadians.

This summary includes results for cannabis inspections conducted from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021. During this fiscal year, a total of 210 inspections of regulated parties were conducted under the Cannabis Act and its regulations (Figure 1).

An inspection rating was assigned to 205 of 210 inspections conducted under the Cannabis Act and its regulations. Some targeted inspections (5 of 39) were not assigned a rating and an explanation is provided in the Inspection results section.

During this period, Health Canada issued a total of fourteen non-compliant inspection reports under the Cannabis Act and its regulations.

Issues observed included: non-compliance with Good Production Practices (GPP), inadequate record keeping, inventory discrepancies, unauthorized activities, and failure to meet certain physical security requirements.
