Ivermectin Included in National Government Protocol for Treating COVID-19


BC CDC, Alberta Health Services: IVM not recommended for COVID-19 outside of approved clinical trials (April 21, 2021).

However, no COVID-19-related IVM clinical trials have been authorised by Health Canada as of May 23, 2021:

In Canada the official narrative is that there is no generally accepted outpatient care. Ivermectin is not recommended for COVID-19 outside of approved clinical trials (however no COVID-19-related IVM clinical trials have been authorized by Health Canada as of May 23, 2021).

In Canada doctors can only prescribe ivermectin off-label, as detailed further in the attached document. There are select few physicians in Canada who do prescribe ivermectin off-label to their patients, but they do so at risk of their license and are unable to service a wider number of patients. Add to that, even if you do find a doctor who is willing to prescribe ivermectin, you will have difficulty finding a pharmacist to fulfill your prescription as they have also been warned against filling prescriptions for ivermectin used as prevention or treatment of Covid.

One Canadian doctor interviewed here had been advocating vitamin D, C, zinc, selenium, as well as quercetin per the protocol of CIMA doctors (Canadian Integrative Medical Association). However when he began seeing patients who were really sick with Covid-19 he knew he needed to do more. His interview can be found here: in this full recording of a webinar with three distinguished medical doctors from South Africa, Canada and USA on the practice of early outpatient treatment treatment for COVID-19.

In Canada the Canadian Covid Care Alliance is working to get ivermectin widely available in Canada – you can sign up for updates at their website here: They are aligned with the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), well known for the work they’ve done in helping ivermectin become more recognized as a reliable preventative and treatment in the USA. There is also this petition demanding early covid-19 treatments in Alberta: you may wish to sign.



Physicians can prescribe Ivermectin for COVID-19 patients; then report it in the Infectious Diseases Information System


HCQ available; IVM being tested for COVID-19 treatment

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need a prescription for hydroxychloroquine​?
Yes, hydroxychloroquine is a prescription drug and you do need it to be prescribed to you by a doctor. 

Can hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) be purchased over the counter?
No. Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin are not an OTC (over-the-counter) drug like Tylenol or Nexium where you can just buy it from your local pharmacy. Therefore, the standard route of requiring a prescription and then having a pharmacist fill the prescription is required. On how to get hydroxychloroquine prescription, please refer to the directory above.
