In Canada, veterinary biologics may be distributed and sold only after they have been licensed by the Canadian Centre for Veterinary Biologics (CCVB) of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. A significant number of veterinary biologics used in Canada are imported from the USA, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

When a foreign manufacturer applies to license a veterinary biologic in Canada, it must designate a Canadian company as its commercial importer-distributor. The prospective importer-distributor must demonstrate that it utilizes appropriate facilities and expertise to import and distribute veterinary biologics in conformance with Canadian regulatory requirements. Once the veterinary biologic meets Canadian licensing requirements, the CCVB issues an annual commercial import permit to the Canadian importer-distributor.

The list below is published in order to help foreign manufacturers locate importer-distributors who meet Canadian regulatory requirements. Companies are listed in alphabetical order; those marked Footnote 1 are international companies or their subsidiaries; footnotes 2-7 indicate the types of veterinary biologics they distribute. This list is updated periodically. Recently approved importer-distributors may not be listed.
