Registration Requirements

All applicants must meet a number of registration requirements before they can register with the College.

While the requirements are the same for every applicant, there are several pathways to registration as a pharmacist or registration as a pharmacy technician.

Some requirements are non-exemptible to ensure that applicants demonstrate core knowledge, skills and abilities to safely practice when they first enter the profession (noted below with an *). These requirements must be met without exception.

Some requirements may be met through alternative means, as determined through a Council (Board) registration resolution or registration policy to allow applicants in certain cases to move forward without being referred to a panel of the Registration Committee.


Each applicant must also have Canadian citizenship or legal status in Canada and personal professional liability insurance.
