Health Products and Food Branch Survey

You are invited to participate in a consultative session to provide your feedback about your experience and your needs. The session will provide an overview of work ongoing in this area within Health Products and Food Branch (HPFB) of the Government of Canada, and then you will be asked a series of questions. Your responses will inform the development of a pre-submission meeting program framework and other early scientific advice initiatives that will help address stakeholder needs and expectations, as well as improve review processes.

Small group sessions for your sector will take place via teleconference. Please choose one of the following times: Monday, December 4, 2:30 – 3:30 or Thursday, December 7, 10:30 – 11:30.

To confirm attendance, please send an email to by Monday, November 27 indicating which session you will attend. Please include the name(s) of the person attending, their organization(s) (if applicable), and email address(es).

Once attendance is confirmed, we will send meeting details. Bilingual meeting documents, including the questions for discussion, will be sent to confirmed attendees in advance of the session.

If you cannot participate in the teleconference but would like to provide written responses to the questions, please email by Monday, November 27 and indicate that you wish to respond in writing only. The questions for discussion will be sent by email for response by Friday, December 8.
