During spring 2024 there have been some notable accomplishments specific to Bill C-368, the Private Member’s Bill that seeks to repeal sections 500-504 of Bill C-47 that applied $5,000,000 per day fines to the natural health product industry.

The bill’s second reading in the House of Commons began on April 29, 2024, with the first of two one-hour-long debates on the bill’s merit. MPs from the Conservative, NDP, and Bloc Québécois parties all expressed strong support. They emphasized the importance of preserving the $3 billion industry, which employs 54,000 Canadians and generates $150 million in GST revenue annually. MPs also criticized Health Canada’s new regulatory framework, warning it would lead to fewer products at higher prices and disproportionately harm women.

Watch this 6-minute video for the highlights from the first hour of debate:

The second reading process isn’t over, and there’s more work to do! We urge you to stay engaged and advocate for Bill C-368’s progress by contacting your MP.
