Heath Canada Alerts

Health Canada is advising Canadians that certain hand sanitizers containing technical-grade ethanol are being recalled from the market because they are not compliant with federal regulations and may pose a risk to health.
Many places in Canada have a high number of heat waves. Extreme heat can put your health at risk, causing illnesses like heat stroke and even death. It is important to take steps to protect yourself and your family before it gets too hot while continuing to follow public health guidance on physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As many Canadians are limiting their grocery trips and using up the food they have at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, Health Canada is providing them with important information on best-before and expiration dates of foods.
