Governance

Certification

The licensee is required to provide, on the request of the patient, the name and practice permit of any regulated member who provides a pharmacy service to the patient or who engages in the practice of pharmacy with respect to a patient.

We ensure that only qualified pharmacists practice in our pharmacies. They must be licensed in the province of Alberta, and must maintain their knowledge and skills at the highest level possible.

Governance in Alberta

The Alberta College of Pharmacists governs the pharmacy profession in Alberta to support and protect the public’s health and well-being. They set and enforce a high standard of competence and ethical conduct.

Patients who have concerns about the pharmacy services they receive are encouraged to discuss the problem directly with the pharmacist. Every pharmacy has a pharmacy licensee, responsible for the policies and procedures at the pharmacy, who can also address your concerns. If necessary, you may ask to speak to the licensee.

If you are still concerned, please contact the Alberta College of Pharmacists directly.
