Pharmacists’ Gateway Canada provides licensing information, self-assessment tools and a centralized document repository for International Pharmacy Graduates (IPGs).

If you are an International Pharmacy Graduate who wants to work in Canada, Pharmacists’ Gateway Canada will help to explain the licensing process for International Pharmacy Graduates (IPGs) like you. The Gateway will guide you through each of the steps in the process and help you to identify what requirements you can complete before you arrive in Canada.

Here, you will find tools to help you:

• understand the practice of pharmacy and the licensing requirements in Canada,

• determine whether you are ready to proceed with the application process to practise pharmacy in Canada, and

• identify areas where you need to improve your pharmacy skills and knowledge

Before the Gateway was created, International Pharmacy Graduates were required to submit the same documents to many different organizations. These documents include identity information, copies of your pharmacy degree, university transcripts, language proficiency test results, reference letters and several other documents.

In Pharmacists’ Gateway Canada, your documents are submitted only once and stored in a central database. This information is secure and protected. It can only be viewed by you, by the Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (PRAs), by the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC), and by NAPRA administrators for the purpose of processing your application for licensure.
