From the Canadian Press:
Health Canada to get clearer picture of prescription drug sales, usage
Health Canada will soon have comprehensive, up-to-date prescription drug databases that it hopes will give the government a better understanding of the drugs Canadians are taking and how they're prescribed.

The department recently put out a call for an $800,000 licence agreement for access to several databases that track information such as monthly sales from the manufacturer to pharmacies and hospitals, as well as specific information about what ailments doctors are prescribing certain drugs for.
