The BC Pharmacy Association is the voice of community pharmacy. Through our organization, we collaborate and advocate for the role of community pharmacists in B.C.'s health-care system.
The Association works with stakeholders like the Ministry of Health, the College of Pharmacists of BC, the University of British Columbia, private insurance payers and other groups to raise the awareness and understanding of community pharmacy in British Columbia.
We have struck working groups on such issues as the role of pharmacists in medical assistance in dying (MAiD), Medication Review Services, Clinical Services, Residential Care and Schedule 1 and 2 medications, to name a few.
Members can get involved in advocacy efforts in a few ways:
- Join our MLA Outreach Program
- Provide feedback on surveys about important issues facing the profession
- Stay up-to-date on issues by reading BCPhA submissions
- Volunteer for a committee or working group
