Who We Are

Founded in 1891, the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia is a vital link in the chain of trust between patients, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

Our job is to protect public health by licensing and regulating pharmacists and pharmacy technicians and the pharmacies where they practice. We are responsible for making sure every pharmacist and pharmacy technician in BC is fully qualified and able to provide the public with safe and ethical pharmacy care.
