Take action on federal medicine price controls (PMPRB)

The federal government has introduced new price controls for patented medicines and vaccines (also referred to as the changes to the Patented Medicine Prices Review Board or PMPRB). The lack of clarity in how the new rules will be implemented along with the steep new price reductions for new medicines and vaccines have already had major negative impacts on Canadians. If you are concerned about the PMPRB changes, please use the following email form letter and social media post to contact the federal government.

The lack of clarity in how the new rules will be implemented along with the steep new price reductions for new medicines and vaccines have already had major negative impacts on Canadians, including:

  • Reduced access to new life-changing medicines and vaccines
  • Diminished access to clinical trials: Clinical trials are how some 
  • Fewer life sciences jobs across Canada: The new rules shrink 

Every Canadian will need at some time a medicine or vaccine that can save their life or help them live better. Canadians have learned this more than ever through the COVID-19 pandemic. Knowing that a medicine or vaccine is available but impossible to access is something no Canadian patient deserves to go through.
