Patient Evidence Submissions

Drug Review Schedule

The Ontario Public Drug Program is currently accepting submissions of patient evidence on the following drug products which will undergo review by the Committee to Evaluate Drugs within the next 12 months.

Drug products on this list include new chemical entities, new combination products and existing drug products with a new indication recently approved by Health Canada. At this time, drug products that are line extensions (such as additional strengths and new dosage forms) and drug products that are undergoing reconsideration (second review, etc.) will not be considered for patient submissions. The Ministry will re-evaluate this once additional experience on the process is gained.

For drug products accepted for Rapid Review process, best efforts will be made to provide maximal time for patient submissions. However, in view of the intent of Rapid Review, the review of a drug product accepted for Rapid Review will not be held if only to include presentation of patient submissions.

Registered patient groups are invited to provide patient evidence on any of the drugs listed below.

All submissions must be received by 5:00pm of the deadline date.
