In order to enhance transparency, as of September 1, 2019, the College began to publish citations and Discipline Hearing Notifications as individual items in the ‘News’ section of its website. These notifications will also appear on the College’s homepage. The College may also include information about upcoming Discipline Hearing Notifications in its monthly ‘ReadLinks Roundup’ email, which is sent to all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

Previously, citations for Discipline Committee hearings were published under Discipline Hearing Notifications’ on the College’s website 2-4 weeks prior to a scheduled hearing.

When the College’s Discipline Committee takes action under Section 39 (2) of the Health Professions Act, these actions are published as ‘Complaints Outcomes’ on the College’s website.

As a Health Professions College under the Health Professions Act, the College’s mandate is to serve and protect the public. Greater accessibility to this information improves transparency and assures the public that they can trust their pharmacies, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians to provide safe and effective pharmacy care.
