In 2015, Canada introduced the Cruelty Free Cosmetics Act (Bill S-214). "This enactment amends the Food and Drugs Act to prohibit cosmetic animal testing and the sale of cosmetics developed or manufactured using cosmetic animal testing. It also provides that no evidence derived from animal testing may be used to establish the safety of a cosmetic." (openparliament.ca) The legislation was lead by Sen. Carolyn Stewart Olsen in consultation with Humane Society International/Canada and Animal Alliance of Canada.
As of December 13 2016, Bill S-214 passed it's second reading in the Senate with overwhelming support. It will now be reffered to the Standing Senate Commitee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology.
