A short video developed for members of the public to help clarify the role of the Ontario College of Pharmacists. The video emphasizes our mandate to serve and protect the public’s interest by holding pharmacists and pharmacy technicians accountable for the safe, effective and ethical delivery of pharmacy services.

As the regulating and registering body for the pharmacy profession in Ontario, it’s the College’s job to serve and protect your interests as a patient. This video was created to give you an overview of the many services your pharmacist and pharmacy technician are qualified and authorized to provide. A pharmacy isn’t just a place to go to pick up your prescriptions. As a patient, it’s important that you’re not only aware of the services these pharmacy professionals can provide, but also confident and comfortable with the care you receive.

The Federation for Health Regulatory Colleges of Ontario published the following video as part of its 2013 public awareness initiative.
