Health Product Advertising Incidents Related to COVID-19

June 25, 2020
by Government of Canada


COVID-19 is a new disease not previously identified in humans. Currently there is no vaccine or therapeutic product for COVID-19 that is authorized to treat or prevent the disease. The outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in a global review of therapies that could be used to treat or prevent the infection.

The health and safety of all Canadians is Health Canada’s top priority and we are taking urgent measures to protect consumers from illegal, false or misleading advertising of products claiming to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19. These practices are deemed non-compliant with Canadian laws on advertising or marketing of health products.
