Joint CSPS and Health Canada Virtual Workshop- Evolving Landscape of Pediatric Medicine in Canada

Join Us and Learn About Recent Updates in Pediatric Medicine

We are pleased to announce the CSPS/ Health Canada virtual workshop “Evolving Landscape of Pediatric Medicine in Canada“.

Plan to attend the joint CSPS and Health Canada virtual workshop Nov 2-5, 2020 (half day program starting at 13:00 ET) to hear from regulatory, clinical and industry experts as they discuss pediatric medicine in Canada today. Gain insights into Health Canada’s Pediatrics Action Plan; learn about the current activities in Pediatric Clinical Trials; updates on Pediatric Data Extrapolation; and the challenges facing Pediatric Formulation Development and more.


To adjust to the new “normal” of online meetings, this workshop will be held over four half days and comprise a pre-recorded presentation, live panel discussion and Q&A with the speakers. The presentation will be available online two days in advance of the live discussion for those not able to attend the full session. On the day of the workshop, the session will be replayed, followed by the live portion. Questions can be submitted before the workshop or live at the workshop.

The goal of the workshop is to exchange scientific viewpoints between the different stakeholder of industry, academia and the regulator. The past CSPS / Health Canada workshops were the nucleus for new regulatory initiatives and updates.


  • Day 1: Landscape of Pediatric Medicine in Canada & Global Regulatory Pathways
  • Day 2: Pediatric Clinical Trials
  • Day 3: Pediatric Data Extrapolation
  • Day 4: Pediatric Formulations & Patient Perspectives
