A Dealer’s Licence will only be issued after Health Canada’s Office of Controlled Substances (OCS) reviews a complete licence application package and the facility inspection is conducted to ensure it adheres to the Directive and CDSA and its associated regulations.
The Office of Controlled Substances is committed to a service delivery standard of 270 calendar days to issue a decision on an application for a new Dealer’s Licence for controlled substances, from the date of receipt of a complete application. However, the time period to possess an application majorly depends on the submission of complete and accurate information.
Applications for a Dealer’s Licence need to submit the following:
- Dealer’s Licence application form
- Corporate documentation
- Physical Security documents (floor plan, security template, security proposal)
- Senior Person in Charge (SPIC) Identification
- Identification of a Qualified Person in Charge (QPIC) and any alternates (A/QPIC)
- Documents in support of the QPIC – e.g. curriculum vitae, copy of degree, course transcripts, Canadian equivalency (if required)
- Description of record-keeping method
- Criminal Record Check or Police Check for QPIC, SPIC, and A/QPICs if any
- Fee payment (up to $5,288) if suitable, based on the substances that need to be listed on the licence
