Step 1 Contact Us

Let us know that you would like to learn more by contacting a Pharmacy Recruitment Specialist in your region or speaking with your Pharmacist-Owner or District Manager.

Candidates will have the opportunity to learn about the Pharmacist-Owner concept of the Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix network in more detail, and have a personal dialogue regarding their career goals and aspirations.


Step 2 Meet With Us

In most circumstances, you will have a series of interviews, starting with a Pharmacy Recruitment Specialist or District Manager. Suitable candidates will move forward and will participate in an in-depth meeting with a senior regional representative from Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix.


Step 3 Training

If you already work for a pharmacy affiliated with Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix, you may be asked to complete the Leadership Excellence and Development Program (LEAD) before being entitled to submit your offer for the acquisition of a franchise business and become a Pharmacist-Owner. If you do not work for a Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix store, we usually recommend obtaining some experience at the store of one of the Pharmacist-Owners affiliated with the Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix network. However, if you are recognized as having the skills to assume the Pharmacist-Owner role, in some circumstances, you may be able to become a Pharmacist-Ownerand subsequently participate in the Leadership Excellence and Development Program.

Step 4 Ownership & Ongoing Support


Negotiation of financing, if any, license documentation and acquisition.

New Pharmacist-Owners also receive a manual with full details of the tasks related to their franchisee status and have a mentor to support their transition after the acquisition of their business into the Pharmacist-Owner role.

Pharmacist-Owners continue to have access to a full resource team, including access to Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprixs in-store web containing volumes of information and resources to support their success!
