Governments at all levels have enacted a wide range of temporary laws, regulations, policies and services in response to COVID-19. A number of these changes affect pharmacy practice and have put pharmacists very much at the forefront of ensuring continuity of care for patients.
The Canadian Foundation of Pharmacy (CFP) has created a chart to summarize the changes and enable quick comparisons between provinces. CFP sifted through official documentation from provincial pharmacy associations, regulators, ministries of health and Health Canada to gather initial information, then worked with the provincial pharmacy associations for fact-checking. CFP will update the information on a regular basis.
