Continuing Education

To provide optimal patient-care throughout their careers, healthcare professionals must maintain their competency and participate in ongoing professional development activities.

OCP provides a number of tools to assist pharmacists and pharmacy technicians with their professional development, including a listing of CE resources:


Pharmacists who are registered to practice in Ontario can apply to the Allied Health Professional Development Fund for education grants for professional development activities that enhance the quality of care and services they provide to Ontarians.

Pharmacists who are eligible for AHPDF education grants are also able to create an account at www.ahpdf.ca to access its practice-focused Electronic Health Library. These evidence-based resources can help Pharmacists grow their professional knowledge and expertise.

The College also provides a list of Continuing Education Providers


Continuing Education Coordinators

The Ontario Pharmacists Association (OPA) has assumed responsibility for the CE Coordinators program. Please visit the OPA’s CE Coordinators page for more information and to access a list of CE Coordinators by region.


Continuing Education Accreditation

The Canadian Council on Continuing Education in Pharmacy (CCCEP) accredits continuing education (CE) programs in Canada.

Apply for accreditation for your CE program directly through CCCEP.
