You can keep your brand safe by investing in a Health Canada site license. In this blog post, learn about the benefits of a site license, the different types of licenses available, and how you can apply for one today!
What is a Site License?
A site license is the most important form of licence offered by Health Canada. It allows for the promotion of one’s brand through Canadian health and fitness-related media with an exclusivity term. This license covers all areas of the website, including the website’s blog, social media pages, product pages, and more.
Why does my brand need a Site License?
The Site License is the first step that your brand will take in achieving webmaster accreditation with Health Canada. As a webmaster, it will help you understand how to comply with Canadian laws and regulations. You’ll also be able to use Health Canada’s rich metadata collection toolkit to create a site that is compliant with Canadian law.
The Process of Purchasing a Health Canada Site License
In order to be able to register a Health Canada site, the owner will need to apply for a Health Canada site license. The application process can take up to 20 days for approval, but it is recommended that you submit your application as soon as possible if you haven’t done so yet. One of the most important steps in the application process is verifying that your site complies with all Health Canada requirements and standards.
How to Apply for a Site License at Health Canada

To apply for a site license, businesses must complete an application form and submit it along with evidence of their eligibility to the Office of Nutrition Policy and Promotion at Health Canada.
Alternative Method: NHP site license
