College Council Election – Call for Nominations 

The College is conducting an Election of Council Members to serve a two-year term, beginning immediately after the Annual General Meeting on May 7, 2022. 

Information regarding the nomination process, including the Nomination Form and Candidate Profile and Statement, was distributed to registrants on February 8, 2022, and posted on the 

CPhM website’s Elections page.

Annual Learning Portfolio Review Reminder 

The College is currently conducting the 2020 – 2021 Annual Learning Portfolio Review. Approximately 20 per cent of licensed pharmacists were selected to participate in this process, and emails were sent to the selected pharmacists in January. A reminder email was also sent on February 10, 2022. Please check your inbox for the email address that you have provided to the College as well as your junk folder to see if you have been selected to participate. 

The Annual Learning Portfolio Review helps ensure pharmacists engage in continuous learning through accredited and non-accredited learning activities to remain eligible for licence renewal and to help maintain competence to practice.

Pursuant to The Pharmaceutical Act and Regulations and the Policy Statement on Practice Directions, CPhM welcomes the feedback of all stakeholders, including registrants and members of the public, through a transparent consultation process. To facilitate this process a webpage dedicated to public consultation has been added to the CPhM website.
