Life Sciences Ontario makes submission to PMPRB GMEP consultation

As a quasi-judicial regulatory agency with a duty to implement government policies in a neutral and objective manner, the PMPRB’s recently released communications plan – which serves as a de facto lobbying campaign aimed at Members of Parliament and other stakeholders, and designed to counter opposing views and shore up support for its reforms – is unacceptable. 
In this context, LSO has serious reservations regarding the PMPRB’s capacity to monitor the impacts of its own regulations in a neutral and unbiased manner. For this reason, LSO strongly recommends that this key auditing role be undertaken by an independent third-party with expertise in policy, regulatory and program evaluation.
