Tips for Finding Reputable Canadian Online Pharmacies

1. Check their Credentials

When it comes to finding reputable Canadian online pharmacies, the first thing to do is to ensure they're certified.

This association was formed in 2002 to ensure safe online shopping for pharmaceutical products. Each member is licensed and regulated by the Canadian government as well.

2. Don't Shop if the Site isn't Secure

When shopping online, always check to see if the site is secure. The telltale sign is if the website's URL starts with "https://". The 's' stands for 'secure'. So, if it isn't present, be wary.

Additionally you can tell if a website is secure if it has a lock icon next to the URL or in the top bar of the browser you are using.

3. Ensure the Site Requires a Prescription

Per Canadian law, it's illegal to sell prescription medications without a prescription. As such, it's a huge red flag if a website doesn't ask you to submit a prescription for any medication that typically requires one.

At Canada Pharmacy, we require that the original hardcopy of a valid prescription be mailed in, as well a copy to be faxed or emailed in. Once received, we can then legally begin to fill your order. For further details on this process, take a look at our How To Order page.

4. Read Through Their Privacy Policy

In addition to the tips above, when looking for reputable Canadian online pharmacies, read through their privacy policies as well.

This is to ensure that your private information will be protected and won't be sold to third-party companies without your consent. If a company's privacy policy is unclear or non-existent, exercise caution before making a purchase.

Canada Pharmacy takes privacy very seriously. We handle all personal information according to the terms in the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) of Canada, as well as the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) of British Columbia. For more information, take a look through our Privacy Policy.

Final Word

Remember, when looking for reputable Canadian online pharmacies, always go through this checklist to ensure you won't get scammed.

Savings aside, there are other reasons why you might want to purchase your medications online. Check out these other benefits when you buy prescription drugs online.
