National Drug Schedules


In May 1995, the National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities endorsed a proposal for a national drug scheduling model, to align the provincial drug schedules so that the conditions for the sale of drugs would be consistent across Canada. This harmonized national model consists of three schedules or four categories of drugs, consistent inclusion factors for each schedule, a standard process for scheduling, and a national advisory committee (National Drug Scheduling Advisory Committee) to make scheduling placement recommendations to the provincial regulatory authorities.
