A pharmaceutical company from Spain, called Almirall bought the rights to Vaniqa in late 2007 as well as a couple of other products from the company distributing Vaniqa in Canada (Shire). It seems they have decided not to keep distributing it in Canada. That is why it is no longer available. Perhaps it will eventually come back.

I too have tried to get vaniqa in Canada. After contacting Barrier Therapeutics, Inc they did tell me they no longer make vaniqa for canadian distribution but could not give me a reason why. I contacted Vaniqa directly and they also could not provide me with a reason why canada can not recieve Vaniqa.

"Barrier Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BTRX), Princeton, N.J., a pharmaceutical company developing products in the field of dermatology, has acquired the right to distribute VANIQA(r) (eflornithine hydrochloride) Cream, 13.9% in Canada from Shire Pharmaceutical Contracts Limited. VANIQA(r) is currently the only prescription product approved by Health Canada for slowing the growth of unwanted facial hair in women." - August 2005
