Health Canada continuously looks to improve the processes that support and encourage interested parties to pursue registration of pesticides in Canada. One of Health Canada's objectives is to provide Canadians access to newer and safer products.
This section of the website contains the tools and information about the processes that support the pesticide registration system in Canada. If you have any questions regarding submissions, the process or any related issue, call our Pest Management Information Service. An Information Officer will assist you and respond to your inquiry in a timely manner.

A Presubmission Consultation service is provided by email, and is designed to help registrants and applicants prepare their data package when they apply to register a product or amend an existing registration. Presubmission consultations will identify what data and forms are required.
Information technology is reshaping the way Canadians work and do business. The Electronic Pesticide Regulatory System, or e-PRS, offers a new approach to information management.
Fill and Print Forms are required to register a pest control product or modify an existing registration.
Health Canada carefully evaluates new pesticides according to rigorous scientific standards to ensure any risks they pose are acceptable and the product has value.
Companies that want to market a pest control product in Canada must submit detailed information and data to Health Canada. Health Canada uses this information to determine if the human health and environmental risks of a new product are acceptable and the product has value. Timelines for Health Canada's evaluation vary depending on the complexity of each submission.
The Use-Site Category Data Code (DACO) tables contain the data required to support an application to register, amend or conduct research with a pest control product.
The Checklist of Labelling Requirements provides applicants with a summary of the required labelling elements for registered pesticide products as per the new Pest Control Product Regulations (PCPR) and to outline how the PMRA applies these requirements.
Pesticide registrations must be renewed in Canada every five years. Health Canada sends all registrants a renewal package. Failure to respond may result in your product not being eligible for renewal.
Pesticide companies must report pesticide incident and sales information to Health Canada. This reporting allows us to monitor pesticide use and impacts so that we can protect human health and the environment while preserving access to safer and economically important pesticides.
Research is pivotal to the development of pest control products. The Research Authorization and Notification Program allows for trials to be conducted to generate new data and/or confirmation of results drawn from other studies to support the registration of a new product or use.
