Health Canada Confirms Plan to Ban Cosmetic Testing on Animals

Health Canada has confirmed that they are developing a proposal to introduce changes to the federal Food and Drugs Act which would prohibit the sale of cosmetics that were tested on animals. The changes would also extend to cosmetics that include ingredients tested on animals. According to a statement by Health Canada, a broad consultation will precede the proposed regulatory changes this year and no changes are expected to be finalized before August 2023.
