Notes:

*No English proficiency exam is required.

*For jurisprudence exam, contact each province of Canada.

*Pharmacy practice in Canada vs. that in the U.S.:

      Pharmacy laws are different in each country.

      Brand names of the same prescription drug are often different in each country.

      Basic and clinical pharmaceutical sciences are identical in both countries.

      Generic drug names are identical in both countries.

*For the pharmacist’s ability to practice pharmacy, there is a wide gap between a non-

      practicing licensee and a practitioner in the U.S.; The such gap is much less in

      Canada.
