Deputy Registrar David Pavan Leaving the College in June 2022

David Pavan, Deputy Registrar, will be leaving the College on June 30, 2022.

David joined the College as its Deputy Registrar in November 2016. Prior to this, David held the position of BC Pharmacy Operations Specialist for Shoppers Drug Mart. Throughout his career, he has always been an active and engaged member of the profession, having served as both a Board Member and Board President with the BC Pharmacy Association.

With over 20 years of pharmacy leadership experience in both rural and urban settings, David brought an expansive knowledge and expertise to his role.  His primary role with the College was overseeing the Complaints & Investigations, Registration & Licensure and Practice Reviews & Quality Assurance departments. 

“It is with mixed emotions that I bid farewell to David. While our time together has been brief, his leadership has been fundamental to so many initiatives at the College. David has been an asset to the organization and we wish him all the best.”   


- Suzanne Solven, Registrar & CEO, CPBC

In his time at the College, David has been responsible for lending his expertise to countless initiatives including BC Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID), Opioid Public Health Emergency, Covid-19 Public Health Emergency, Excellence Canada, the College’s Governance, Ethics, Inquiry and Discipline Committees, and many BC Health Regulator, BC Ministry of Health and National pharmacy initiatives.

Over the past 5+ years, David has truly exemplified what it means to be a steward of public health and safety. We thank him for his dedication to pharmacy in British Columbia and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
