New Code of Ethics for Profession of Pharmacy

Published Dec. 9, 2015, 3:10 p.m.

Following an extensive collaboration and consultative process, a new Code of Ethics for the profession of pharmacy in Ontario was approved by College Council at their December 2015 meeting. The new Code is in effect immediately.

While practice expectations have not changed in the new Code, it more appropriately addresses current practice and clearly establishes the standards of ethical conduct for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

Learn more about the development of the new Code of Ethics on our key initiative page.

Given the importance of the Code of Ethics as a foundational document for the profession, a comprehensive communications and education plan will be put in place to ensure current and new practitioners understand the new code. More information will follow in the coming weeks.
