Corporate Profile

The was founded in 1997 by four UBC Pharmacy Graduates with the aim to serve the community and to provide the highest standard of care and services to their patients. The group has grown to six stores and over 70 employees. The PharmacyBC Group is part of “The Medicine Shoppe” franchise system in which each pharmacy is independently own. Every aspect of The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy is designed with your health in mind. Our slogan is “Your Health, Our Priority”. A dedicated focus on health care products and services coupled with a warm welcoming environment make “The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy” award winning concept the pharmacy of choice of Canadians from coast to coast. We have programs and services to take care of your health.

The history of the four owners of “The PharmacyBC Group” is an interesting one. They went to University of British Columbia; they were roommates, became best of friends and have been together since 1991. Upon graduation they went to work for a chain drug store for a couple of years and they kept in touch and close contact. During their time working in the chain drug store environment, they all felt a lack of fulfillment professionally. They felt their education was being underutilized and they could be doing more. This is when they decided to start their own independent pharmacy group. Their vision was and still is to specialize in pharmaceutical care, to be at forefront of new patient care programs including the innovative “Pharmacy with Care Program”, and to be on cutting edge and lead pharmacy through innovation with technology.

The CKD pilot is in partnership with the Kidney Foundation of Canada (BC branch), The Ministry of Health, and Pharmacare. We are also proud to be one of eight pharmacies selected through a new initiative and call for partnership by Vancouver Coastal Health. The purpose of this partnership is to provide services in-home medication adherence monitoring services to Mental Health and Addictions patients. We are also excited to have been selected by UBC to be one of twenty participating pharmacies for a pharmacogenomics pilot involving INR.
