Canada Immigration News from the Provincial News Prince Edward Island released on 12/10/2023. PEI expanding safe use of Biosimilars 
Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news and I am Joy Stephen, an authorized Canadian Immigration practitioner bringing out this special edition of Immigration news from Provincial News, Prince Edward Island. This news was released by the government on 12/10/2023. I am coming to you from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario. Today is the 13/10/2023 
Prince Edward Island is joining several other provinces and territories by expanding the use of biosimilar drug treatments for Island residents. Through the PEI Biosimilar Initiative, coverage under PEI Pharmacare for certain drugs will be replaced with coverage for biosimilar drugs. 
Biosimilars are highly similar versions of brand-name original biologic drugs. As defined by Health Canada, biologic drugs come from living organisms or from their cells. Examples of biologic drugs include insulin, growth hormones and antibodies. Biologic drugs are generally larger and more complex in composition than chemically produced pharmaceutical drugs. 
If you are covered for any of the following drugs through PEI Pharmacare, you will need to switch to a biosimilar version by June 30, 2024 to keep your coverage. 
If you need assistance to participate in Provincial or Federal programs or assistance after selection, please contact us   
Good luck!
