Advocating for the consumer health products industry since 1896

CHP Canada is the industry association that represents the companies that make evidence-based over-the-counter medicines and natural health products. These are the products you can find in medicine cabinets in every Canadian home. From sunscreens and vitamins to pain relievers and allergy medications, people use consumer health products to maintain their health and manage their minor ailments. This is a fundamental part of self-care, which is vital to the health of Canadians and the sustainability of our health care system.

Our vision

Canada is a global leader in advancing innovation and growth in an evidence-based consumer health product marketplace, providing Canadians with safe and effective self-care options.

Our mission

As the trusted voice of the evidence-based consumer health products industry, we work collaboratively with stakeholders and governments to shape a policy and regulatory environment that recognizes the value of self-care and supports the growth of our industry. This ensures Canadians have access to a wide range of safe and effective products to maintain and improve their health.

What we do

CHP Canada is the leading advocate for the Canadian consumer health products industry. We have helped shape virtually every piece of legislation, regulation or policy that affects the consumer health products that Canadians rely on to manage their personal health. We work alongside our members, government, and the broader health care sector to enhance the contribution consumer health products make to the sustainability of our healthcare system and the overall health of Canadians.
