The number of pharmacists grew sharply in recent years as the proportion of seniors in Canada’s population continue to increase. The demand for pharmacists working in hospitals and community pharmacies is high, and will persist over the next few years. A bachelor of science degree in pharmacy and practical training under a working pharmacist are a must to land a job. Additionally, you’ll need a licence issued at the provincial level.
