Health Canada has approved this insulin, along with another pork product, Hypurin Porcine Isophane, known as Hypurin Pork Isophane or Hypurin Pork NPH in Canada. Both are currently available on the Canadian market without importation.  See wiki's CP Pharma page for more information regarding their Canadian availability.
While both R/neutral and semilente insulins are considered fast-acting, they differ in a few ways. As above, there's no suspension or buffer  in R/neutral; it's totally dissolved and soluble, meaning it can safely be used intravenously.
