Statement from Health Canada
Expanding on the statement issued on February 20, 2015, Health Canada is delivering the current update:
On February 13, 2015, Health Canada issued a “Notice of Intent to Refuse” to CEN Biotech, Inc. as a rebut to its application for a license to cultivate under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR).
The MMPR states that Health Canada must give proper notice to applicants that it intends to reject for a license. Said applicant is then given 20 days to introduce formal written representations.
The Department has presently notified the company that the decision to deny the application is now certain.
