In short, drug prices in Canada are lower because the Canadian government regulates the price. In Canada, a review board decides on pricing and what they believe are reasonable or excessive prices. If they decide a drug is priced too high, they will not allow it on the drug formulary.

Lexchin said Canadian drugs are cheaper because the government regulates the price of generic and brand-name medication. The prices of cheaper generic drugs, which account for most prescriptions, are set through deals with drug companies at the provincial and national levels. Why are prescription drugs cheaper in other countries?

Moreover, there's the fact that American litigiousness increases drug costs. A 1996 white paper entitled " Product Liability and Prescription Drug Prices in Canada and the U.S." quotes a 1992 study that found that 121 of 200 commonly prescribed meds were a median of 43% higher in the U.S. than in Canada at the time.
