Keeping your pharmacy licensed
There are specific situations that require pharmacy owners to take action to ensure there is no interruption to the pharmacy licence.
Change of Ownership
Within seven days of an ownership change, you must submit the following to the College via mail, fax, or in-person to maintain the pharmacy’s licence:
- An Existing Community Pharmacy Licence Application or Existing Hospital Pharmacy License Application (if the owner is not a member of the College, we require an original ink signature)
- A copy of the articles of incorporation from the new owner
- The original current licence with the appropriate sections on the back completed
- The fee as stated on the bottom of the licence application
NOTE: Once you complete the above, Manitoba Health will issue the pharmacy a new Pharmacare number. The pharmacy’s licence number will remain the same.
Adding components to your pharmacy
If you seek to establish an external dispensing location in a community without reasonable access to pharmacy services, you must submit an External Dispensing Pharmacy Component Application.
Lock & Leave Permit
A lock & leave permit allows pharmacy operation without the physical presence of a pharmacist. Before applying, review the Lock & Leave Practice Direction for information on the permit requirements.
Those seeking to establish a satellite component for an existing community pharmacy licence must submit a Satellite Pharmacy License Application. For more information, please see the Satellite Pharmacy Component Criteria.
Pharmacy Technician Final Check
Upon College approval, pharmacy technicians can perform a final check when drug preparation and dispensing were performed by another pharmacy technician, student, intern, or another pharmacy staff person.
Pharmacy managers must submit their proposed pharmacy technician final check policies and procedures for College approval using the Pharmacy Technician Final Check Application. Please refer to the Pharmacy Technician Final Check Information Sheet for guidance.
