Health Canada gave notice that it will begin posting the Product Monographs (PM) for drug products in Canada on its website. PMs are scientific documents that describe the properties, claims, indications and conditions of use for a drug product. PMs are reviewed and approved by Health Canada. Currently, PMs are available on request from Health Canada or by way of an Access to Information Act request.

The posting of PMs will begin in the Winter of 2007/2008 and will apply to PMs authorized after January 2004. PMs authorized prior to that date will be added if post-marketing changes result in a new PM being filed. Only the most recent version will be published.
