Pharmacy technicians who hold a current certificate of registration in another Canadian jurisdiction may apply for registration in the Special Class for a maximum period of 45 days. The special class of registration is intended to allow pharmacy technicians to practice for a limited time and specific purpose, such as practicing as a locum pharmacy technician for a specified period of time or covering technician services in the event of an emergency. A pharmacy technician may apply for Special registration a maximum of twice in one year.
The requirements for Special Registration are set out in the Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Regulations.
Unless otherwise specified, all documentation must be received by the PEI College of Pharmacy in its original form or as a notarized copy. Original documents may be presented to the PEI College of Pharmacy office to be copied by staff.
