Does it require the MCAT? Because back in 2016 apparently they brought it back but in their website they say its not required. https://med.uottawa.ca/undergraduate/hidden/does-ottawa-require-mcat

No, it's not required for Ottawa - it was probably because the MCAT is only offered in one language and hence, it would have been unfair for one stream compared to the other.

Would that also infer that their undergraduate programs such as BioMed and HealthSci are harder to compensate for the lack of the MCAT?

Why would that be the case? Students completing their undergrad degree at uOttawa who apply for medicine are not applying only to uOttawa. Furthermore, you can apply to med school from any undergrad program - biomed and health sci will not be harder at uOttawa compared to at other schools or compared to other uOttawa programs simply because their MD admissions don't require the MCAT.
