Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is initiating a review of the pesticide Re-evaluation Program that will:
Explore opportunities for enhanced stakeholder engagement earlier in the process to inform the risk assessment
Examine a more sustainable approach to re-evaluations that will balance appropriate funding and workload
Seek increased collaboration with international regulators on re-evaluations to capitalize on the best available science and sharing the regulatory workload.

PMRA is also launching a pilot program to enhance agricultural stakeholder engagement in re-evaluation decisions. It will work with growers of minor-use crops to increase awareness of the re-evaluation process and proposed decisions, and facilitate growers' participation in the re-evaluation process.
The objective is to achieve a sustainable Re-evaluation Program that continues to protect health and the environment, and incorporates efficiencies and streamlined business practices.
Throughout fall 2018, PMRA is running a series of sessions with stakeholders and key partners to discuss challenges and successes of the current program, investigate how other countries re-evaluate pesticides, and learn from stakeholders familiar with those processes.
