Manitoba Pharmaceutical Association

The Manitoba Pharmaceutical Association (MPhA) was established in 1878 and is the pharmacy regulatory and licensing authority in Manitoba. The principal mandate of MPhA is protection of the public.
To fulfill our mandate, the MPhA:

  • Registers and licenses pharmacists and pharmacies;
  • Ensures compliance with requirements, legislation and standards of pharmacy practice;
  • Supports continued maintenance of competence of practising pharmacists; and
  • Through continuous quality improvement strives for excellence in the provision of patient-centred pharmacy practice and improved patient health outcomes.

The MPhA is a founding member of Canada's National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA) and is a member of District Five of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). In 2004, the NABP awarded the MPhA the Fred T. Mahaffey Award in recognition of "outstanding efforts to protect public health and welfare".
