Physical Barriers Support Fund

A total of $110,000 in funding from Health Canada for pharmacist OAT training has been reallocated to provide funds for BC community pharmacies to help offset the cost of the purchasing and installation of physical barriers (e.g. Plexiglass) between pharmacy staff and patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will be allocated based on the number of applications received, and we anticipate funding of approximately $80-$120 per pharmacy.

Application criteria:

  • Any licensed community pharmacy in BC that has purchased a physical barrier between January 28 and April 302020.
  • Successful applicants will receive up to the same level of funding, not exceeding the cost of the barrier purchased.
  • Proof of purchase must be uploaded
