Pharmacy managers will now use the Pharmacy Portal, an online tool within eServices, to manage pharmacy information and complete their renewal online. The manual renewal process will not be available moving forward.
Pharmacy managers with a June pharmacy licence renewal deadline will be the first group to use the Pharmacy Portal, and were notified in May.
The Pharmacy Portal allows pharmacy managers to update their store information, including hours of operation, staff roster, and pharmacy services. During the pharmacy licence renewal, managers will also make declarations and submit payment online.
Pharmacy directors also have access to the Pharmacy Portal. They are able to view the pharmacy information, staff roster and pharmacy services, but cannot make any changes to those areas. Directors can make changes and submit the necessary documents when updating the pharmacy manager and/or the pharmacy directors.
Please see the following chart:
|Pharmacy Portal||Pharmacy Manager
(Name, address, hours of operation, etc)
|Staff Roster||✓||View Only|
(Methadone, Compounding, etc)
|Change Pharmacy Manager||-||✓|
|Change Pharmacy Directors||-||✓|
Pharmacy staff do not have access to the Pharmacy Portal. They will continue to keep their information current using the eServices>Update Profile tab.
If a pharmacy manager adds a new registrant to their staff roster in the Pharmacy Portal, the added pharmacy professional will receive an email notification instructing them to accept or deny the request. Pharmacy professionals must respond to the staff roster request before the change is effective. The staff roster request will appear in the eServices>Update Profile tab.
The College created resources for the new process, including a tutorial for pharmacy managers, and quick references for pharmacy professionals, and directors. These resources are available on the website.
