Join Gowling WLG and Ad Standards for an informative webinar on advertising and regulatory issues that have arisen in response to COVID-19.

Our panel of leading authorities will discuss Health Canada's guidance on ad claims about consumer products such as antiseptic cleansers, hard surface disinfectants, soaps and masks. Further, the panelists will summarize expedited approval pathways and exemptions that may facilitate the supply of these products. The speakers will also explore the pitfalls that arise in ads related to pandemic concerns around safety, scientific claims and misleading representation. A Q&A session will follow the discussion.

Guest speaker

Catherine Bate, Chief Legal & Policy Officer, Ad Standards
