As part of our commitment to transparency, the College has recently added additional information to our Find a Pharmacy/Professional tool regarding pharmacy assessments. This enhancement is part of the ongoing evolution of our public register.

While the College has posted the dates and outcomes of pharmacy assessments on Find a Pharmacy/Professional for a few years, we have now included the reason for the assessment as part of the information. We’ve also changed some of the terms used to describe assessment reasons and outcomes to enhance public understanding and provide a clearer picture of the process by which we accredit and assess pharmacies.

To learn more about the pharmacy assessment process, please visit the Pharmacy Operational Assessment Process page.

The College is committed to providing relevant, up to date information to patients to help them make informed healthcare decisions. Our mandate is to protect the public, and we believe that the public should have information to help them decide who and where they want to seek pharmacy care and services from. We will continue to look for opportunities to enhance the information shared through the Find a Pharmacy/Professional tool.

Please note that due to a technical issue, community pharmacy assessments that occurred between July 1, 2013 and December 31, 2015 are not currently displaying. We anticipate that this issue will be resolved soon.
