Patient Evidence Submissions

Registered Advocacy Groups

The Ontario Public Drug Program is currently accepting submissions of patient evidence from the following advocacy groups. The advocacy groups are invited to provide patient evidence on any of the drugs listed on the drug review schedule. Only submissions from advocacy groups are accepted to ensure that perspectives from many patients and caregivers are captured collectively.

The Ministry will not be notifying any advocacy groups that may be interested in submitting patient evidence on what drugs are under review.  Advocacy groups are encouraged to check the drug review schedule on a regular basis for updates on drugs that are pertinent to the group for providing patient evidence.

Submission of patient evidence is not limited to the advocacy groups listed below. The ministry does not endorse any specific group. Advocacy group who are not on this list are encouraged to register by completing the Advocacy Registration Form (English | French)
