The term of a provisional pharmacist is typically two years and commences when the practice permit is issued. Provisional pharmacists have two years to meet the entry to practice requirements to be a pharmacist.
According to the Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians Profession Regulation, if a provisional registrant does not meet the requirements for registration within two years, the registrar must remove the provisional registrant from the register. However, on application by the registrant, the registrar may consider extending the two-year period if the registrar is satisfied that there are extenuating circumstances.
If, due to extenuating circumstances, your practice permit is going to expire before you have met the entry to practice requirements, you may submit an application to extend term of practice permit to email@example.com.
If your practice permit has expired, you are not permitted to practise pharmacy. You may reapply should you wish to return to the provisional pharmacist register.
