JUNE 2020 Jurisprudence Exam CanCelled

BC's COVID-19 Response

The situation regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve here in BC, Canada and other jurisdictions in the world. The College of Pharmacists of BC is working closely with the Ministry of Health and other partners to support the response to this new illness as part of BC’s health system.

The College will provide any updated information or guidance for pharmacy professionals as it becomes available.

Please follow updates provided on bcpharmacists.org/COVID19

Pharmacy professionals exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms should follow the COVID-19 testing process developed for all British Columbia health care workers.

Due to the ongoing developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, the College of Pharmacists of BC has made the difficult decision to cancel the June 2020 sitting of the Jurisprudence Exam.

This decision was not made lightly, keeping in mind the impact on candidates and the health and safety of all candidates and exam personnel. The decision was based on current national and provincial public health authorities’ guidelines.

The College is currently exploring alternate future dates to hold the Jurisprudence Exam. If an alternate date is made available, this information will be posted on the College’s Jurisprudence Exam webpage.

Temporary Registration Options

Pharmacy graduates (including UBC) who are not yet full Pharmacists may be eligible for temporary registration with the College of Pharmacists of BC during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this time of uncertainty, the College would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding.
