The pharmacy in Quebec

Since in Quebec it is necessary to be a pharmacist to hold a pharmacy, the Quebec Association of Proprietor Pharmacists (AQPP) brings together the 2048 pharmacists who own the province, whether they are affiliated or not with a chain or a commercial banner.

Employing more than 44,000 people throughout the territory, the network of community pharmacies is the largest private employer in Quebec.

More than a million consultations are conducted in pharmacies each week, making the pharmacist one of the most available and appreciated health professionals in Quebec.
