Is Cosmelan approved by Health Canada?

I can't seem to find any information about the FDA or Health Canada approval of the Cosmelan treatment. Is it approved by Heath Canada?

Cosmelan is a skin lightening protocol that is used for cosmetic skin rejuvenation. In our office, we use Melapeel protocols to address skin discoloration and pigmentation alongside Melarase creams.
