English Abstract: 

"The Health Canada Controlled Subject Vocabulary was developed to provide subject access to Health Canada's information resources. The Controlled Vocabulary is a bilingual, structured, indexing and information retrieval tool for both publishers and users of the documents and information published on the Health Canada Web site. The terms listed in the controlled vocabulary are used in the Dublin Core metadata record for the SUBJECT element, where appropriate and feasible, in order to provide accurate and comprehensive results when searching the Health Canada Web site. The Health Canada Controlled Subject Vocabulary ('gchccv') has been registered with Library and Archives Canada for this purpose. The scope of the Controlled Vocabulary is dynamic and reflects subjects that have been addressed at one time or another in Health Canada sources. Terms were selected from the Government of Canada's Core Subject thesaurus and various Health Canada products, including publications, databases and related sources. The following types of concepts have been excluded from the Controlled Vocabulary: geographical names, titles (e.g., of programs), proper names (e.g., of companies) and acronyms, except where they are in common usage. The Controlled Vocabulary is a set of preferred terms that can be used to catalogue documents. It standardizes the words associated with a given subject matter, allowing for more precise searches and preventing ambiguous database indexing."
