The Ontario College of Pharmacists

The Ontario College of Pharmacists (OCP) is the registering and regulating body for the profession of pharmacy in Ontario. Its mandate is to serve and protect the public and hold Ontario’s pharmacists and pharmacy technicians accountable to the established legislation, standards of practice, code of ethics and policies and guidelines relevant to pharmacy practice.

The Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism Exam is an entry-to-practice requirement for registration as a pharmacist or pharmacy technician in Ontario. It may also be ordered by an OCP committee for a registrant as part of their remediation. The exam is administered three times a year in February, June and October. Refer to the OCP website for more information including exam and application deadline dates.


The Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism Exam

Once your online exam application through the OCP Member Portal is approved, a Jurisprudence Eligibility Number is assigned to you for scheduling your exam appointment and for taking the exam with Prometric.  The Jurisprudence exam is offered as a computer-based exam on-site at a Prometric Test Centre and online by remote proctor.  If you schedule a remote proctored exam, you must review the requirements for testing online and test your computer system to ensure both the technical equipment and environment are appropriate.

There are two ways to take your exam:

Option 1: Schedule a test centre exam appointment

To better understand Prometric’s physical distancing policies, click here.

Option 2: Schedule a remotely proctored exam appointment

The Jurisprudence Examination requires a monitor with a screen resolution of 1920x1080.  If you do not have access to a monitor which meets this requirement, do not schedule a remotely proctored appointment.

Remote proctors currently only speak English. However, the ProProctor system and exam, including tutorial instructions, are available in French.

Candidates taking the exam in the Atlantic Time Zone, please select Atlantic Standard Time for your exam start time and not Atlantic Daylight Savings time.

Before selecting a remotely proctored exam, please perform the ProProctor system check to confirm your computer’s compatibility.

Other requirements for taking a remotely proctored exam are included in the ProProctor User Guide.


If you must reschedule your exam appointment, please do so as soon as possible.
