WHAT IS HEALTH CANADA’S NUMBER ONE CONCERN?

Thanks to Deane Parkes for this succinct summary of Health Canada’s values, first printed in the Canadian Natural Health Retailer Magazine and reproduced with permission:

“Here are a few things to consider as we anticipate what some people say could ruin the health food retail business and many suppliers business. (I realise there are those in our industry who see the regulations as a good thing so they need not read any further.)

Health Canada states their #1 concern is the safety of Canadians.

Remember this statement.

Consumer Health Products Canada: Who are they? Apr 16/11

A recent press release from Consumer Health Products Canada (“Advancing evidence-based self care”) has just announced:

Ongoing sale of unlicensed Natural Health Products is undermining consumer confidence.

It lauds Health Canada’s achievements to date with the NHP Regulations and quotes spokesperson Gerry Harrington on their own research…“We share that expectation and believe that full enforcement of the Regulations will build consumer confidence in the long-term.”

The release warns us to beware of retail outlets still selling unlicenced products and advises consumers to shop at pharmacies which only carry licenced NHPs.

Checking a list of CHP Canada’s Active and Associate Member Companies, you will  find it a list of the chemical pharmaceutical companies operating in Canada.
