1. HALF-YEAR option (January 1 to June 30, 2021):

This option applies to all other students, including Waterloo University Pharmacy Class of 2021 students, who will be graduating in the fall. You can renew online through your secure account or by filling out an application form.

First time joining CSHP?
Here's what you need to know:
We have a one-time referral program that you may be eligible for: If someone encouraged you to join CSHP, provide their name on the ‘referral’ line in your application, so they can receive credit! Those who make a referral receive $5 for every pharmacy resident and student. Credit can be applied toward publications, continuing education programs, and renewal fees. Learn more about CSHP's referral program.
You must be affiliated with a branch: Every Student Pharmacist Supporter, with the exception of those residing outside Canada, must be connected with a Branch and pay the applicable branch fee. Individuals living outside Canada who wish to be connected to a branch must pay the applicable branch fee.
To join CSHP, you will need to download a printable version of the application form. We offer a half-year program (for students in Pharmacy Class of 2021, who will be graduating prior to July 1, 2021) and a full-year program for all other students (please note, this program extends to June 30, 2022). Save this file to your desktop, fill in all form fields, and save for your records. Completed forms may be returned by mail, fax, or email (you can find contact information below). Once your application has been submitted, please allow up to 3-days for processing. Upon activation, you will receive a confirmation and dues receipt by email.
If you can't open the application, you may need to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
