Bia Labate » Update in legal status in Santo Daime Canada: Health Canada refuses to grant permission for importation of Daime | Publisher |

In April, 2001, having hired a lawyer to represent us and done the necessary research for the application, we applied to Health Canada, the Office of Controlled Substances (OCS), for an exemption under section 56 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Acts, for the importation, transportation and administration of the sacrament. Five years of research and investigation followed, and in July, 2006 I was informed that the evaluation of our request had been concluded and that we were granted an exemption, in principle, pending Brazilian export permission.
