Pharmacy is the cornerstone of every locally owned Shoppers Drug Mart® store. The practice of Pharmacy is our focus, and we are passionate about it.
Pharmacists are employed by Shoppers Drug Mart® Associate-Owners who offer the right environment and incentives for personal and professional growth with new and exciting concepts in patient care, technology and career development.
When you become a member of a Shoppers Drug Mart® Associate-Owner team, you will be encouraged to advance your education and pursue special designations, and will be provided with unparalleled support in achieving your professional goals.

Others have obtained the International Society of Travel Medicine Certificate in Travel Health and provide complex travel health services in the Shoppers Drug Mart® networks’ Travel Health Centres of Excellence.
