Canada Vehicle Recalls

The Vehicles Recall Database is used by the Defect Investigations and Recalls Division of Transport Canada to record recalls and monitor recall completion rates pertaining to vehicles, tires, and child restraints. This app reports the recalls of consumer cars and SUVs in the database.

You can search recalls by vehicle maker, model and year. The report will include official recall number, manufacturer-assigned recall number, total affected units, affected item parts and detailed description of the recall etc.

Approved Drug Checker

This tool helps in finding product specific information on drugs approved for use in Canada. The app is connected with Health Canada Open Data using API. The Health Canada Open Data includes human pharmaceutical and biological drugs, veterinary drugs, radiopharmaceutical drugs and disinfectant products. It contains approximately 47,000 products that are currently approved, marketed, dormant or cancelled.

Adverse Event Vigilance Data On Canadian Drugs

This published data visualization app is based on Health Canada's Vigilance Database on Drug's Adverse Events (side effect reports) APIs. I created this data visualization alongside a programmed database since there has always been a need for quick retrieval of 'Big Data'.

Health Canada’s large dataset covers years 1965 until today. They update it quarterly. I published this light versioned data visualization by only featuring the latest quarter's data. It provides data interactively faster. I can cover more if required.

Notice of Compliance (NOC) Database

A Notice of Compliance (NOC) is issued to a manufacturer following the satisfactory review of a submission for a new drug, and signifies compliance with the Food and Drug Regulations.

The database is updated nightly and contains NOC information on human drugs from January 1, 1994 to date. It also contains NOC information on Veterinary drugs from September 19, 2000 to date. Through a phased in approach Health Canada will populate the remaining NOCs for Veterinary drugs from January 1, 1994 to September 18, 2000.
