The salary ranges for pharmacists vary widely, with some departments receiving salaries of up to $80,000 and others earning as little as $25,000.
The range is also influenced by the number of hours they work and whether they are part-time or full-time, but it’s a good idea to check the actual salary, said Dr. Christine McManus, the president of the Canadian Pharmacists Association.
“We’re seeing this as the industry continues to grow and that means we’re seeing more and more people going into the pharmacy space, so we’re really seeing the growth of the industry and how that’s changing,” she said.
Dr. McManuses said pharmacists are working to provide pharmacists with the information they need to make their jobs as effective as possible, but she said pharmacist salaries aren’t set in stone.
“It’s really a matter of how you go about managing it,” she added.
