Pharmacy in Canada

Canadian pharmacists are leading the charge to bring accessible health care to patients across the country.


Pharmacists are the most accessible health-care professionals in Canada, dispensing and providing advice on 750 million prescriptions per year. Convenient and close to home, pharmacists are taking on expanded roles and deliver an estimated $4.7 billion of value per year by improving access to care and reducing pressure on the health-care system. As the world of pharmacy continues to evolve, pharmacists and pharmacy teams are doing more for their patients than ever before.
