Ocrevus has been approved in Canada but for those with RRMS only. No mention is made of those with PPMS who were meant to be included among those eligible for Ocrevus.

Speculation has it that Canadian approval for PPMS patients to receive Ocrevus will come along later.

From Markets Insider (August 15, 2017):

Still no explanation of the exclusion of PPMS. From Multiple Sclerosis News Today, August 17, 2017:
