Attention: 2% LIQUID STRYCHNINE USERS

On March 4, 2020, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) published the final re-evaluation decision on strychnine used to control Richardson’s ground squirrels (RVD2020-06). 

Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act Health Canada is canceling the registration of all strychnine products used to control Richardson ground squirrels.  Environmental risks associated with the use of strychnine to control Richardson’s ground squirrels are not acceptable.  

Important Dates:
 
2% Liquid Strychnine Concentrate (Registration No. 30433 PCP Act) is canceled and phased out with timelines as follows:


Proper disposal of all unsold existing stock is the responsibility of the registrant of 2% Liquid Strychnine and is to be done in accordance with the label directions and any applicable provincial laws. This includes disposal of all unsold stock in the distribution and retail chain following the above schedule. Furthermore, the registrant is responsible for providing information to members of the distribution and retail chain regarding the above-specified last dates.

The registration of 2% Liquid Strychnine Concentrate will expire after March 4, 2023, the last day of permitted use.  Continued possession and/or use of the product after this date is a violation of the Pest Control Products Act.
