Generic Name Trade Name Class Subclass Approved For Pediatric Approval Notes Monograph

About is an unofficial database of Health Canada approved indications for pharmaceutical medications sold in Canada. Many medications are prescribed off-label in Canada, but clinicians may not be aware that what they are prescribing is in fact off-label. This website aims to provide a quick reference for clinicians to check whether a medication recieved Health Canada approval, and have informed consent discussions with their patients when off-label use occurs. The list currently only includes psychiatric and some neurologic medications. The data from this website is pulled from Health Canada's Drug Product Database (DPD).
