About The Courses

The Canadian Pharmacy Practice Programme is a bridging program for internationally educated pharmacists to help them achieve the competencies for pharmacy practice in Canada. It's also structured to assist Canadian-trained pharmacists to re-enter pharmacy practice after a prolonged absence or to provide updates on core competencies for practicing pharmacists.

This programme consists of several modules: Therapeutics, Communications, Health Care Systems Overview, Patient Dialogue Skills and Practice Skills Lab. The modules are designed to be interactive rather than didactic in nature, ensuring that students participate in "hands on" learning.


The Canadian Pharmacy Practice Programme publishes the Pharmacy Foundations Review Guide, comprised of a number of independent study modules based on the Canadian undergraduate pharmacy curriculum. Production of these modules has been made possible through a financial contribution from Health Canada, in collaboration with the Western and Northern Health Human Resources Planning Forum and its member jurisdictions.

The modules are not intended for remediation nor are they intended to capture an entire undergraduate course. Rather, the purpose is to assist those pharmacists, whether educated in Canada or overseas, who already possess the required academic qualifications and who wish to review and refresh aspects of their undergraduate knowledge.
