Infant Formula Supply in Saskatchewan

Updated July 2023

Information for Parents

The supply of infant formula in Canada continues to be limited. For regular infant formulas, powdered formats are often out of stock in various locations. This has been particularly impacting on lower cost product options.

Health Canada has reported that new regular formulas are beginning to appear in retail stores and pharmacies across the country. More are expected in the coming months.

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health and Saskatchewan Health Authority continue to be in contact with Health Canada and receive updates on the situation to minimize the impact on Saskatchewan families. For the most up to date information on the formula supply in Canada, visit Information for families on the limited supply of infant formula -

We encourage families to purchase only the supply they need at the time to ensure others requiring formula have access. Concerned parents should discuss appropriate feeding options for their infant with a health care professional, such as a family physician, pediatrician, nurse practitioner or dietitian.

For families looking for more general information, visit feeding your baby. For support or more information, contact your local public health office.

Information for Pharmacists and Health Professionals

The supply of specialty formulas has been more stable since the fall of 2022. Several specialty infant formulas have returned to shelves at pharmacies and retailers, at the discretion of manufacturers.
