Existing regulations on health supplements already keep Canadians safe. These unnecessary new regulations put Canadian businesses at a disadvantage.
New regulations being placed on health supplements are extremely burdensome, to the point that some supplement-makers say that the Canadian market is simply too small for it to be worth the investment.
Canadians will lose access to the health supplements they choose due to more red tape and fees to the federal government, rather than improve health impact. This new red tape is about pushing small and medium-sized manufactures out of business instead of protecting Canadians.
The new regulations will drive up costs to consumers, cut availability for people with rare health conditions, and prevent new products from being developed. The new requirements make it more difficulty to read labels, create environmental waste, and cost consumers more.
Common sense Conservatives will ensure Canadian businesses are competitive and that Canadians’ access to safe supplements is protected.
