Pharmacy students and interns who are registered with the College have the authority to practice within the scope of practice under the supervision of a Part A pharmacist, to the extent appropriate to their level of education and personal sphere of competence. See the College chart of legal authority and guidance of supervision for details.
NOTE: Only individuals who have met the requirements and are registered with OCP as a pharmacy technician can practice in Ontario as a regulated pharmacy technician (i.e. a pharmacist cannot practice as a pharmacy technician.)
This is part of a broader initiative of the provincial government to invite additional experienced health care providers to help province-wide health system efforts to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19, including former healthcare providers who are retired or those who registered as inactive with their respective regulatory colleges.
