A pharmacy owner’s work is never done. We understand this! That’s why we created the OPA Owners Bundle to better support you with the demands of being a pharmacy owner. We play a leading role in expanding the scope of pharmacy practice and are here to equip your team with the information it needs. OPA’s Owners Bundle also provides your entire practice with the OPA’s comprehensive DIRC Premium service, Canada’s premium pharmacist-operated drug information service.
Here’s what the OPA Owners Bundle offers you:
- One Full OPA Membership – Your Owners Bundle gives you all the features and benefits of an OPA membership including leading professional development for every stage of your career, and networking opportunities with your colleagues;
- DIRC Premium Subscription – Equip your entire pharmacy team with the industry-best drug information offering. Unlimited drug information questions plus access to premium business services including HR Assist™ and Audit Assist™ designed specifically to support the independent pharmacy practice.
- Owners Advisory Council Membership – Owners have a special perspective on pharmacy issues. Your OPA’s Owners Bundle entitles you to join our exclusive Owners Advisory Council-Independent Caucus, a consultation panel that discusses owner-specific issues. The Council gives owners a powerful voice: these issues are presented directly to the OPA's Board of Directors.
- More Owners Bundle Exclusives – Owners receive marketing support and sample in-store materials for annual campaigns like flu shot, MedsCheck, and seasonal promotions.
- More than $400 in savings – In addition to the added convenience, the Owners Bundle saves time and money by providing a bundle of services, including insurance for your store, at a discounted rate.
- Advocacy – We are fighting for you, and for all Ontario’s pharmacists. We are the most trusted negotiating partner for the provincial and federal governments, and we work hard to champion the interests of pharmacy owners on funding, scope of practice, cannabis, opioids, business practices and so much more.
- Networking Opportunities – Stay part of the close-knit community of 10,000+ pharmacy professionals. Enjoy rewarding interactions with your peers and many other exclusive networking opportunities.
