Open Letter from NAPRA to Health Canada regarding US importation of drugs from Canada

Tue, Aug 06, 2019

Assistant Deputy Minister Hoffman:

The National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA) is an alliance of the provincial and territorial pharmacy regulatory authorities as well as the Canadian Forces Pharmacy Services. Our members regulate the practice of pharmacy in their respective jurisdictions in Canada and their primary mandate is protecting and serving the public interest.

Recent efforts in the United States (US) to legalize the importation of drugs from Canada in order to mitigate drug costs pose a serious risk to Canada’s healthcare system and the Canadian public. We trust that Health Canada will assess the impending risks outlined herein and will support a course of action that will protect Canadians from the consequences of the proposed changes in US legislation.
