Most Canadians have access to reimbursement for prescription medications through private insurance plans (third-party insurance), the provincial / territorial drug benefit programs or federal programs for certain groups.

Funding for a particular ADHD medication will depend on where you live since health care falls within the jurisdiction of each individual province and territory. Funding varies considerably from province to province or territory.

The website DrugCoverage.ca provides a useful guide to reimbursement for prescription medications in Canada. This site provides information on these programs and provides links to important pages of their websites. Click on the province of interest (either on the map or on the dropdown menu) for an overview of the private insurance, provincial / territorial drug benefit programs and federal programs available to residents of that province or territory. Alternately you can go directly to any program or page using the sidebar menu.
