Canada’s Drug Agency

Canada’s Drug Agency is a pan-Canadian health organization.

Created and funded by Canada’s federal, provincial, and territorial governments, we’re responsible for driving better coordination, alignment, and public value within Canada’s drug and health technology landscape.

We provide Canada’s health system leaders with independent evidence and advice so they can make informed drug, health technology, and health system decisions, and we collaborate with national and international partners to enhance our collective impact.

Canada’s Drug Agency recognizes the traditional territories, rights, and diversity of all First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities across Canada. Indigenous Peoples have been, and continue to be, excluded from and harmed by Canada’s health care systems. In the spirit of reconciliation, we are committed to addressing these inequities alongside Indigenous communities.
