I'd like to...

Should you wish to license in another Canadian province, the U.S. or any other country a letter of standing will be required.  Please complete the application form and return, with payment, to ACP via mail or fax.

Processing time for a letter of standing is 15 business days. You will receive a copy via email once the letter of standing has been issued.  Where possible, ACP will issue a copy of the letter of standing to the requested licensing authority via email in addition to the original that will be sent via Canada Post.  ACP does not send letters of standing via courier or priority post.

If you’ve changed your place of employment, you must notify our office by email ( or fax (780-990-0328).

Your notice must include:

  • your name and certificate number,
  • effective date of change,
  • name and licence number of the pharmacy where you now work.

You must notify ACP of an employment change within 14 days.

You must request a change to your name in writing - email or fax 780-990-0328. Please include a copy of your official documentation (marriage or birth certificate). We will mail a new practice permit (reflecting the name change) to the address on file.

If you wish to replace your membership certificate as a result of a name change, you may request a replacement certificate. Please return your original certificate to our office along with payment for the replacement certificate (see the current fee schedule.)

Pharmacy technicians must renew their practice permit annually. The renewal period is from mid October to November 30 of each year.  Renewal notices will be sent via email so please ensure ACP has your most current email address. 

Renew your practice permit online via the registrant profile. Use the login credentials you use for all other secure areas of the website, including the CCP portal.

ACP is moving to a digital format for our practice permits starting in 2023. This means that practice permits and renewal receipts are no longer being printed and mailed to registrants. Instead, renewal receipts will be emailed upon completion of the renewal process and a digital copy of practice permits will be available online early in 2023. The official tax receipt is confirmation of successful completion of the renewal process. Prior to practice permits being available online, beginning on January 1, 2023 (the start of the new registration term), registrants will be able to provide proof of registration by referring to the “Find a registrant” public register on the ACP website.

Pharmacy technician licensing year is January 1 to December 31. Your current practice permit will expire on December 31.
