Application Procedures & Deadline Dates
There are two separate applications and two separate fees for Document Evaluation and the Evaluating Examination. The fee for Document Evaluation is CAD$530 and the fee for the Evaluating Examination is CAD$515. Please note: There is an additional administration fee of CAD$365 for the London, England site of the Evaluating Examination.
Once we have received your Document Evaluation application it will take approximately 2 weeks for an acknowledgement email to be sent to you. This email will inform you of the status of all documents required for Document Evaluation. We do not acknowledge receipt of any other documents until we receive your Document Evaluation application. If you are concerned with the delivery status of any of your documents, you should check with the courier.
If you wish to write an upcoming Evaluating Examination, you must correctly submit all documents and fees for Document Evaluation and the Evaluating Examination by the deadline for the examination you have chosen. If we do not receive your documents on time, your Evaluating Examination application will be applied to the next Evaluating Examination. The next deadline is:
October 5, 2012 for the January 9 and 10, 2013 Pharmacist Evaluating Examination
You will need to submit the following to be considered for Document Evaluation.

If you have any questions regarding documents required, please contact PEBC at pebcinfo @ pebc.ca.
