Food and Drugs Act e-Learning Module

The Food and Drugs Act e-Learning Module is one in a series of learning modules that the College has introduced. It is an overview of key principles in the Food and Drugs Act and its related regulations. We recommend that you view this module and refer to the legislation as required, as well as the practice policies and guidelines applicable to the FDA and the resources available on the Health Canada website.

The estimated running time is approximately 90 minutes but will depend on your individual pace.


Please note that the FDA e-Learning module is only a tool to support learning the FDA and its regulations and is not a comprehensive study resource. It is important to refer to the official legislation for more detailed and current information.


Effective October 17, 2017:

  • NAPRA has updated their website which has changed its overall appearance and that of the National Drug Schedules. The video embedded in this module was created before this change. However, the basic content and navigation of the drug schedules remains similar.
Practice Policies, Guidelines and Other Resources

Pharmacy practice policies, guidelines and tools were developed to support the legislation and its regulations. Please refer to the OCP website for further resources and tools that are applicable to the FDA and to the Health Canada website to support your understanding of the legislation.
