Advocacy is at the heart of the work that the Ontario Pharmacists Association does for its members. It’s in the mission (advocating for professional excellence), it colours how the Association talks about itself (the voice of pharmacists in Ontario), and it is front and centre in the strategic plan that guides the activities of the Board and staff each day.
The Association is in constant contact with government, payors, the Ontario College of Pharmacists and industry representatives. We work to flag issues of concern to members and push for changes that will benefit patients and members alike.
Help us tell the story of pharmacy in Ontario. Our advocacy efforts are stronger when we can point to concrete examples of the impact that Ontario’s pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have on the lives of patients. Email OPA at CEO@opatoday.com to tell OPA about how you’ve made a difference in the health and well-being of a patient.
