With several new technologies at our fingertips like nanotech, AI and electromagnetic sensors, developers and end-users alike have many questions about the Health Canada certification processes going forward.
To this end, the Centre for Bioengineering and Biotechnology has invited Health Canada regulators from the Device Licensing Division and the Scientific and Technical Division to participate in a one day workshop. They will detail the process to obtain Health Canada approval for medical devices with:

  • Robotic humanoid and robotics applications
  • AI functionality and features
  • Wireless functionality from low Hz to sub-THz bands including mm-Wave
  • Talks by Health Canada representatives:
