North America Consumer Product Safety Summit

Health Canada's Consumer Product Safety Directorate will host the second trilateral North America Consumer Product Safety Summit with the United States Consumer Protection Federal Agency ("CPSC") and Mexico's Federal Attorney's Office of the Consumer ("PROFECO") September 9-11, 2013, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

At the Summit, consumer product safety regulators from Canada, Mexico and the United States will discuss areas of common interest and collaboration under the Cooperative Engagement Framework established at the first Summit in 2011 in Bethesda, Maryland. Please note that the first day of the Summit, September 9, is for regulators only, and is not open to the public.

The Summit is also an opportunity for key stakeholders to hear about a variety of consumer product safety issues during the two days of open sessions on September 10 and 11. The sessions will feature five themes, outlined in the Summit Agenda Overview.

The open sessions will also be broadcast through live internet streaming.
