May a pharmacist fill a prescription from out of province?

February 19, 2013

If the prescriber is authorized to write the prescription in their province of employment, then a pharmacist may fill it. Which medications various health professionals are permitted to prescribe varies by province. To confirm prescription validity, check with the prescriber’s college in their province of employment. 

This answer applies to both TPP and non-TPP prescriptions.
