Access Canada (excluding Quebec)

User Avatar

Do you understand this graphic? The Council for Continuing Pharmaceutical Education (CCPE) course Pharmaceutical Market Access in Canada provides a comprehensive overview of the market access environment in Canada. It’s recommended, but not a pre-requisite, that you complete that course first to obtain the basic understanding of the dynamics in market access. This course, Understanding Market Access Submissions: Public Payer Series for Canada (excluding Quebec), focusses on understanding the roles and responsibilities of the key players in market access, the main components of a formulary submission to the different public payers, and pertinent insights as to why payers are asking for certain information. Completion of this course should help industry professionals better prepare more robust formulary submissions to meet their reimbursement objectives.

This course will be invaluable to other team members within the pharmaceutical company (e.g. sales, marketing, medical, regulatory departments) as they all directly or indirectly influence, and/or are impacted by the formulary submission strategy and dossier. Other team members, outside the formal market access department, will also better understand what is similar or different in the value proposition that will resonate for payers vs prescribers.


After completing the course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the submission process for listing on provincial formularies in Canada (other than Quebec)
  • Discuss where to find the latest submission processes


70 multiple choice questions.
