Who We Are

CAPDM - Who We Are

CAPDM represents an industry that provides an indispensable service to Canadians, supplying pharmacies and hospitals with essential medicines.

Our full name is Canadian Association for Pharmacy Distribution Management

We are advocates not just for pharmaceutical distributors, but also for drug manufacturers and the pharmacies themselves. It can be a delicate balancing act because something beneficial to a member in one sector can be detrimental to one in another. So we always strive to find solutions that work for all our members.

On an ongoing basis we liaise with provincial and federal governments, and help them form regulations. We host think tanks with business leaders to find innovations that keep not just goods, but the industry itself, moving in the right direction. As well, we set standards and monitor developments both here and around the world.


We are the voice of an industry that more than ever, needs to be heard!



We continually provide education forums and in an industry that is as complex as it is vital, we play an essential role as a unifying force by providing stability for a diverse membership with common interests.

We are the go-to people when there is a supply crisis, prepared to do whatever is necessary to help Canadians in need.
