Strategic Plan

Setting the strategic direction for the College as a self regulatory body is Council’s foremost responsibility. This five-year plan sets the roadmap for the future of the College and the profession and is the culmination of months of planning, engagement, review and collaboration between Council, staff, pharmacy professionals, patients, and stakeholders. Based on the four pillars, this strategic plan looks to the future of healthcare in New Brunswick and aligns with the Department of Health’s Stabilizing Health Care: An Urgent Call to Action plan.
