Health Canada

Health Canada plays an active role in ensuring that you have access to safe and effective drugs and health products. The Department strives to maintain a balance between the potential health benefits and risks posed by all drugs and health products. Our highest priority in determining the balance is public safety.

Working together with other levels of government, health care professionals, patient and consumer interest groups, research communities and manufacturers, our department endeavors to minimize the health risk factors to you and maximize the safety provided by the regulatory system for these products.

They also strive to provide you with the information you need to make healthy choices and informed decisions about your health.

Medical Device

The term Medical Devices, as defined in the Food and Drugs Act, covers a wide range of health or medical instruments used in the treatment, mitigation, diagnosis or prevention of a disease or abnormal physical condition.

Additional information on how medical devices are approved and authorized in Canada is available on the fact sheet "Safe Medical Devices in Canada".

Health Canada reviews medical devices to assess their safety, effectiveness and quality before being authorized for sale in Canada

The Therapeutic Products Directorate (TPD) undertakes a variety of activities including the making of policies or regulations to support its role as the federal regulatory authority for the sale of pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices in Canada. These activities are carried out with the participation of clients, stakeholders and the general public.

MD manufacturers must receive a medical device license for certain health products defined as a "device" under the Food and Drugs Act before they can be sold on the Canadian market. To determine which devices need a license, all medical devices have been categorized based on the risks associated with their use. Prior to selling a device in Canada, manufacturers of Class II, III and IV devices must obtain a medical device license. Although Class I devices do not require a license, manufacturers, distributors and importers are required to obtain an establishment license.

MD may also require certification by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) prior to licensing for operational or servicing activities.
