Emyria (ASX:EMD) has received approval from Health Canada to begin importating MDMA into Australia.
The $23.36 million market capitalisation company has received all necessary Health Canada export permits and has confirmed all regulatory requirements.
This ‘significant’ development follows the start of dosing for Emyria’s MDMA-assisted therapy program, believed to be a first for a private specialist clinic in Australia.
Commenting on the approved importation, Emyria Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr Michael Winlo says: “As a leading private specialist clinic in Australia, we’ve achieved a significant milestone with the initiation of active MDMA-assisted therapy.

The company’s MDMA supply is sufficient for up to 70 patients and is pivotal for the company’s ethics-approved therapy trial and, potentially, direct patient care if specialists received Authorised Prescriber (AP) status from the TGA.
Emyria is a clinical services and drug development company focused on revolutionising patient outcomes in neuroscience and mental health.
