In response to COVID-19, many Canadian consumers turned to vitamins and mineral supplements to help them build their immunity and keep themselves healthy. Increasing demand from senior Canadians combined with a growing awareness of the preventative health benefits of many vitamins and dietary supplements will continue to support demand for these products.
Canada is home to one of the most attractive markets for U.S. manufacturers of nutritional supplements. Nearly 70 percent of Canadian adults report they have used a natural health product, and 38 percent report they use at least one daily.
Since January 1, 2004 all-natural health products (NHPs) must be approved by Health Canada before they are allowed to be legally sold in Canada.
