- A signed prescription from your licensed American doctor is required for all purchases.
- By Canadian law, all U.S. prescriptions are also reviewed and signed by a Canadian doctor.
- Canada Prescriptions Plus uses only licensed pharmacies.
(Caution: Never order from a pharmacy service that does not have these same requirements in place. You may have seen advertisements or websites for pharmacies that offer to sell prescription medications without a prescription from a U.S. doctor and a signature from a reviewing doctor from the country that the drug is shipped from, these are not legitimate pharmacies.)

The FDA and imported medications
United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) representatives have recently been quoted as saying that Americans shopping for medications outside of the United States, should purchase them through Canada because Canadian drug regulations and testing systems are nearly identical to those of the U.S.
Health Canada is the Canadian government agency with a similar mandate to that of the FDA in the U.S. All medications sold in Canada (including those for export) are closely regulated by Health Canada.
Many of the drugs that CPP ships are produced by the same manufacturers at the same facilities as the drugs sold at your neighborhood drugstore.
About Canadian Pharmacists and the Canadian pharmacy industry
Drugs in Canada are lowered-priced than in the U.S. because the Canadian government controls the prices of medications (NOT because they are of lower quality). The value of the U.S. Dollar also favorably affects the prices for Americans.
In order to become a licensed pharmacist in Canada, an individual must be University trained and pass provincial and federal exams. Licensed Pharmacists must adhere to stringent regulatory guidelines set out by pharmacy governing councils and provincial pharmacy boards and Colleges of Pharmacists.
There are over 7000 pharmacies across Canada. Canadian pharmacies are known for offering some of the highest standards for quality and safety around the world. Many Canadian pharmacies now sell prescription medications to American citizens.
