Enrolment in Pharmacists’ Gateway Canada (the Gateway) is a mandatory first step in the process to become a licensed pharmacist in Canada except in the province of Quebec. It provides a National ID number, which is required to apply to the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC) for Document Evaluation and creates a profile where you can track your progress using a licensure model and becomes a document repository where the PRAs can access information uploaded by PEBC and your language test report. The fee for enrolment in the Gateway is $340.
This information can only be viewed by the candidate, PEBC, the pharmacy regulatory authority (once the candidate applies to them) and NAPRA administrators as appropriate.
Please note that the pharmacy regulatory authorities in Canada do not have special recognition or advance standing for graduates from an institution which has an International Accreditation by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP) Like any international pharmacy graduate (IPG) interested in licensure in Canada, graduates of International Programs accredited by CCAPP must follow all the requirements as set out within this website.
