Abstract

This article examines key issues concerning the regulation of dietary supplements in Canada. The article looks at problems related to both the composition of supplements and of marketing practices. It looks back to the situation around 1999, the year of the introduction of the new system for the regulation of supplements, and then assesses the situation now. The new system has failed to bring about the intended improvement in either the formulation of supplements or the level of honesty in their marketing.
