About BCPhA

The British Columbia Pharmacy Association (BCPhA) is a not-for-profit association that aims to support and advance the professional role and economic viability of our members so they may provide enhanced patient-centred care. 

With a membership of almost 2,800 pharmacists and more than 800 pharmacies, the BCPhA is the organization recognised for representing the interests of pharmacies and pharmacists throughout the province. 

We seek out professional solutions that serve both pharmacists and their patients, and advocate on our members' behalf with government. We work alongside the College of Pharmacists of BC and with UBC's Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences to ensure we are delivering the most current and useful information.


BCPhA is separate and distinct from the College of Pharmacists of BC, the regulatory body for pharmacy in British Columbia. BCPhA is also not affiliated with other provincial pharmacy associations or the Canadian Pharmacists Association, although it works closely with these organizations where appropriate in the interests of its membership.
