Pharmacists who have obtained their pharmacy education outside of Canada (IPG)

As one of Canada’s pharmacy regulatory authorities (PRAs), we have entrusted our national association, the National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA), to develop a new, national approach to facilitate the licensure process for IPGs and to eliminate duplication.

The Pharmacists’ Gateway Canada – will now be the first point of access for applicants rather than the PRA. To help IPGs navigate the licensure process and facilitate their preparation for licensure in Canada, the Gateway provides a website with key information online and through telephone support and features two self-assessment tools which assist IPGs to make an informed decision before starting the process to become licensed as a pharmacist in Canada. For IPGs wishing to practise in Canada, the process of obtaining a licence begins with enrolment in the Gateway.

We believe the Gateway presents a simple, transparent and safe way to facilitate the pathway to licensure for IPGs wishing to live and work in Canada.

*Note: If you registered with the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC) prior to August, 2014, you must apply directly with the New Brunswick College of Pharmacists and not through the Pharmacists’ Gateway Canada.
