From CBC News:
Dosanjh moves to make MDs report serious side-effects
Federal Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh wants to make it mandatory for physicians to report adverse drug reactions so that Canadians can have confidence their prescription drugs are safe.

At the moment, doctors voluntarily tell Health Canada when they suspect a side-effect from a prescription drug caused a patient to become ill or die.
