The much-anticipated arrival of the abortion pill Mifegymiso in Canada has been delayed until the new year.

The drug’s Canadian distributor, Celopharma Inc., says it now expects to launch “some time in January.”

Company president Paula Tenenbaum gave few details in a terse email exchange but said it was related to “a change in manufacturing site.”

Last month, Tenenbaum said Mifegymiso was on track for a November debut in Canada.
