It is an unfortunate reality that pharmacies are frequent targets for thieves. This includes both traditional burglaries and also fraud and forgery.

To help protect the livelihood and the personal safety of all pharmacy professionals, the Ontario Pharmacists Association has developed tools to help you protect your store and your staff.

Our guidelines provide detailed notes about how you can help to prevent robberies, break-ins, and forgeries. They also explain what to do if you are the victim of one of these crimes.
