Pharmacy is a quite different area of study involving the scientific, legal and managerial aspects of dispensing medicines. The main responsibility of the pharmacist is to provide safe and effective use of medication for the patient. Pharmacists require a license in order to practice. A degree in pharmacology does not qualify you to practice pharmacy.

A qualified Pharmacy professional is offered a best package and can earn very well in this industry. Pharmacy has great scope in Canada.

You should follow the following procedures for a Registered Pharmacist License in Canada:

1. First of all your back home degree should be evaluated by Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada.(PEBC, Canada)

2. Then you have to pass two exams conducted by PEBC called 'Evaluating Exam and Qualifying Exam'.

3. Once you pass the above two exams (PEBC Evaluation and Qualifying exams) you will be given a certificate called 'Certificate of qualification' by PEBC.

4. Now it's your turn to choose which province you would like to practice and obtain English score according to that province regulation

5. Next you have to finish sufficient hours of training in the pharmacy (usually there are 2 stages of training, studentship and internship)

6. Finally, pass the Law exam (Jurisprudence exam) and get the 'Pharmacist License'.
