Summary of various COVID-19 measures instituted by Health Canada

Authored byAlice Tseng

Health Canada has instituted numerous measures to help address and combat COVID-19, from facilitating access to COVID-19 products to protecting the public from false or misleading advertisements claiming to prevent, treat or diagnose COVID-19 (see our previous bulletins on these issues in the “Health Canada's response to COVID-19” section).

Given the extensive measures instituted, Health Canada has also published documents summarizing its various measures. Health Canada’s regulatory response to COVID-19: Access to health products is one particularly helpful document.
