From Health Canada:

The innovative and rapidly evolving nature of cosmetics, together with globalization, has prompted Health Canada to consider ways of modernizing Canada’s Cosmetic Regulations. The modernization of the Food and Drugs Act, including the Cosmetic Regulations, have been identified as action items under the Government of Canada’s Food and Consumer Safety Action Plan.

This survey represents the first phase of a multi-phase consultation with stakeholders, including industry representatives, members of the general public and not-for-profit/non-government groups. The feedback obtained will be analysed and carefully considered by Health Canada in the formulation of potential changes and modernization concerning the way in which cosmetics are regulated. In the longer term, there will be additional consultation for the development of a modernized regulatory framework for cosmetics, including a final consultation on the fully developed framework.
