Join us for our upcoming Master Class webinar, Discussing Health Canada’s Proposed Fee-for-Service Model for Natural Health Products, taking place on May 18, 2023, from noon to 1 p.m., EDT.
Health Canada has recently proposed a new fee-for-service model to be introduced for companies wishing to seek approval to sell Natural Health Products (NHPs), both at the time of initial product submission and on an ongoing yearly basis. Fees would also be introduced for site licences. The fees would have a significantly negative impact on companies selling NHPs in Canada, including those involved in direct selling, in what is already a complex space.
Lewis Retik, Partner at Gowling WLG, will provide an overview of this proposal, discussing its various elements and outlining the concerns it creates for the direct selling channel.
Peter Maddox, President of DSA Canada, will discuss actions available to the direct selling industry to fight this proposal. These include a formal submission; advocacy to government; member company activation; media outreach; and building coalitions with other impacted groups.
Time will be set aside for discussion, and attendees are encouraged to bring questions and opinions to share with industry colleagues.
A recording (excluding the discussion portion) will be made available to members after the event.
This webinar is free for all employees of DSA Canada member companies.
