Not all substances have been considered for admissibility. You can find out if Health Canada can make a quick decision about the substance or if an Application to Add a Substance will be required, by either emailing an inquiry to email@example.com or using the submit request option from within the application form.
We recommend that you review all the documents explaining the program.
An account is required to create an application.
