About Find a Pharmacy or Pharmacy Professional

The Find a Pharmacy or Pharmacy Professional section of the Ontario College of Pharmacists’ (OCP) website allows users to access useful information about their pharmacy or pharmacy professional.

The College is required to maintain this part of the website by law. Sometimes known as the “public register”, Find a Pharmacy or Pharmacy Professional includes lots of useful and specific information about pharmacies and pharmacy professionals in Ontario.
