Dear Full-Time Pharmacist,

This year’s theme, THE CENTRE OF IT ALL: #PUTTING CUSTOMERS FIRST, pays tribute to the fact that our customers are central to everything that we do, and each of our lead offerings, programs, and initiatives are designed to make the experience of visiting our stores even better in the future.
The conference will be held on Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30 at the Toronto Congress Centre, 650 Dixon Road, in Toronto.   Your Associate recognizes that Pharmacists value on-going learning and development and supports these activities by providing this unique opportunity to you and your colleagues.

Below are a few important details that Pharmacists have asked about at previous conferences. Please feel free to discuss any additional questions or comments with your Associate.
  • Full-time Pharmacists working exclusively for Shoppers Drug Mart a minimum of 28 hours per week are strongly encouraged to attend the 2017 Pharmacist Continuing Education Conference.
  • Pharmacists scheduled to work on Saturday and Sunday of the conference will be eligible for regular wages for all their scheduled shifts.  Those not scheduled to work Saturday and Sunday of the conference will not be paid additional wages to attend.
  • Air travel is approved only for Pharmacists who live greater than 4 hours from the conference site.  Accommodations are available for all Pharmacists on Saturday evening if desired.  In addition, Pharmacists who must arrive to the conference site on Friday due to travel restrictions (greater than one hour drive from conference facility) will be eligible for accommodation on Friday evening as well. 
  • We will be offering two additional CE Sessions on Friday, April 28 for those Pharmacists that can attend without incurring any additional costs.  Vehicle travel to and from the conference should be discussed with your Associate.
We look forward to seeing you at the Conference!
