Licensee Education Program (LEP)
Anyone who is applying to become a proprietor’s agent for a new pharmacy or an existing pharmacy MUST complete the proprietor’s self-assessment or Part B.
Every licensed pharmacy requires a licensee and a proprietor’s agent as identified on the application for a pharmacy licence. The proprietor’s agent is the individual who is either the owner or the designated representative of the owner(s) who fulfils the responsibilities and obligations of a proprietor in accordance with the Pharmacy and Drug Act and has been identified and approved through a pharmacy application process (see further explanation here).
- Any pharmacist who is not currently a licensee, MUST complete Parts A and B before applying to become a licensee.
- Any pharmacist who is currently a licensee
- MUST complete Part B before applying to renew their pharmacy licence in 2021 (deadline is May 31, 2021);
- MAY complete Part A; and
- MUST complete Part A and Part B if they are applying to become a licensee of a new pharmacy, or if they are applying to become the new licensee of an existing pharmacy.
- Anyone who is applying to become a proprietor’s agent for a new pharmacy or an existing pharmacy MUST complete the proprietor’s self-assessment or Part B.
For current licensees of existing pharmacies, the deadline to complete Part B of the LEP is May 31, 2021, which should be sufficient time to complete the course. When developing the program, we ensured we were respectful of the busy time and provided a timeline for completion that reflected this. For those applying for a new pharmacy licence, ACP is committed to ensuring that all applicants have a good understanding of the roles and responsibilities they will assume as a licensee before acquiring their new licence.Part A of the LEP has been CCCEP-accredited for six continuing education units (CEUs). Part B of the LEP has been CCCEP-accredited for four CEUs.
