Fees & Timelines

Each pathway to registration as a pharmacist or pharmacy technician has the relevant registration requirements, and the overall time and cost estimates required to register in Ontario through that pathway.



Some fees are payable to the Ontario College of Pharmacists while other fees are payable to third parties.

Access the application and OCP-specific requirement fees. In most cases, acceptable forms of payment to the College are Visa, Mastercard, American Express, cheque, or money order. Fees for applications for a Certificate of Registration and the Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism exam must be paid online by credit card.

Access the information on third party fees. Note that third party organizations may have restrictions on the types of payments they accept.
