What is the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act?

What is the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act?


The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act is a federal drug control law in Canada. The Act classifies substances into categories known as "Schedules." Each controlled substance listed in the Act belongs to a specific Schedule. Schedule VI contains two classes of precursors. Precursors are also regulated, as they can be synthesized in the manufacturing of controlled substances.


What Drug-Related Criminal Offences Fall Under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act?


While the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, along with the regulations established under it, authorize exemptions for lawful activities involving controlled substances and their precursors for various legitimate purposes such as scientific research, Part I of the Act outlines several types of criminal offences and their corresponding penalties. These criminal offences include:

  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking

  • Importing and exporting

  • Selling or trafficking

  • Production
