The Ontario Pharmacists Association sent an email to members about naloxone and "Narcan".
I added some underlines for specific areas that I wanted to highlight.
"Availability and Selling of Naloxone Nasal Spray (Narcan)
The Ontario Pharmacists Association has received member inquiries regarding the availability and selling of naloxone nasal spray (Narcan). We have reached out to the manufacturer and have confirmed that at this time Narcan is not distributed to wholesalers. Pharmacies wishing to purchase Narcan should contact Adapt Pharmacy Canada to purchase this directly.
Pharmacists are reminded that Narcan Nasal Spray is Schedule 2 and can be sold without a prescription from a pharmacy.
At this time, intranasal naloxone is only available free of charge through community-based organizations to clients of needle syringe programs and hepatitis C programs and their friends and family, as well as to newly released inmates.
Patients wishing to obtain a Naloxone kit free of charge from a pharmacy may be provided injectable naloxone through the Ontario Naloxone Pharmacy Program."
