The Government of Canada is committed to modernizing regulations relating to the beer compositional standards in order to better serve the beer industry and consumers. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is seeking comments on proposed changes to the beer compositional standards during a 60-day consultation. Proposed changes were published in a Notice of Intent in Canada Gazette, Part I, on June 17, 2017. A World Trade Organization (WTO) notification was also shared to solicit feedback from Canada's trading partners. The CFIA will take all comments into consideration when amending the beer compositional standards in the Food and Drug Regulations. It is anticipated that the proposed amendments will be pre-published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, spring 2018. The beer compositional standards in the Food and Drug Regulations establish the requirements a product must meet in order to be labelled, packaged, sold, or advertised as beer in Canada.

Regulations Amending the Food and Drug Regulations (Opioids)

Food and drug | Health
Jun 17, 2017 - Aug 31, 2017
The potential for harm associated with opioid drugs and the growing related public health crisis is the subject of increasing concern for Canadians and other levels of government in Canada. Health Canada has identified the need for strengthened post-market oversight of opioids to help monitor and mitigate their risks, and the need for patients to receive additional, clear information about the safe use of opioids and the risks associated with their use. The proposed amendments to the Food and Drugs Regulations would expressly permit the Minister of Health to add or amend terms and conditions to an authorization for the sale of an opioid. This authority could then be used by the Minister to compel an opioid authorization holder to develop and implement a risk management plan to appropriately monitor, quantify, characterize and mitigate the risks associated with post-market use of these products. The proposed amendments would also require that a patient information handout and warning sticker accompany prescription opioids at the time of sale.
