Pharmacy Student from Canada (Outside BC) or United States

A student enrolled in a pharmacy education program in Canada or the US who wishes to undergo a period of structured practical training or provide pharmacy services in BC must be registered with the College.

Here are the steps to register with the College:

  1. Register with the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia 

    Please allow at least 20 business days for processing. 
    Checklist for Student Pharmacist (Non UBC) Registration 
    Application for Student Pharmacist (Non UBC) Registration 
    Note: the application processing time is due to the criminal record check (CRC) process which can take at least 20 business days. If adjudication or fingerprinting is required for the CRC, then the processing time will be further extended.

    A notarized affidavit is required if your name is not the same on all identification submitted or you cannot provide the supporting documents for the name differences. See Related Resources below for a sample.

Congratulations! You are now a registered student pharmacist. The College will issue you a student registration card. Your student registration will be valid for a period of 1 year. You can access your registration card through eServices. If you require an additional year, you will be required to re-apply as in step 1.
