2019-2021 Strategic Plan


Trusted to Lead.

Inspired to Serve.

Driven to Protect.

In June 2018, College Council formally approved a new strategic plan that will guide the work of the College for the next three years. The development of the new strategic plan was guided by the College’s public-protection mandate and informed through feedback received from a diverse range of stakeholders, including members and health system partners, government and the public.


As the College begins to put the strategic plan into motion, here are some of the initiatives and activities you'll begin to hear more about that will focus on advancing the three core strategic priorities identified by Council:

Patients First Icon

Strengthen trust and confidence in the College’s role and value as a patients-first regulator.

This will include a greater emphasis on building public awareness of our role as a regulator, promoting greater transparency and continuing our efforts to benefit from the lived experiences and insights of patients in our work, programs and strategies.

Enhancing Capacity Icon

Enhance the College’s capacity to address emerging opportunities and advance quality and safe pharmacy practice and regulatory excellence.

This will include making sure we have the right capacity and structures in place to excel at our work and placing a greater emphasis on data and shared learnings to support quality improvement, effective evidence-informed decision making and better patient outcomes.

Enhancing Icon

Enhance system and patient outcomes through collaboration and optimization of current scope of practice.

This will include implementing key strategies related to cannabis, medication safety, opioids and optimizing practice. It will also include establishing and spreading new partnerships and collaborations across the system to promote quality and safe pharmacy care.
