On August 23, 2021, Health Canada posted an update on the consultation paper that was released on May 20, 2021. This consultation paper focuses on the key policy proposals to modernize Canada’s clinical trials regulatory framework. One of the points discussed was clinical trial transparency. Along with the consultation paper, an online questionnaire was provided to seek feedback from the interested industry and non-industry stakeholders including all interested Canadians.
Interested stakeholders could refer to the consultation paper and send feedback either via an online questionnaire or by sending a written submission by email. The consultation feedback ran from May 20, 2021, till July 04, 2021.
The feedback received during this consultation will help make a decision with respect to outstanding proposed regulatory policy, and program consideration for each product line in the future.
A summary report on the discussions and comments received named “What we heard” is planned to be published in fall 2021.
