The call for nominations for the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada 2021 Awards is now open!

AFPC’s awards recognize the outstanding contributions of faculty members in education, leadership and research. Student research achievements are also recognized. The AFPC Awards 2021 Nominations Booklet provides details for all awards. 

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, AFPC will be holding its annual Canadian Pharmacy Education and Research Conference (CPERC 2021) virtually next June. All AFPC awards will be offered for 2021, except for the Whit Matthews and Educational Scholarship Poster Awards. The AFPC / Merck Canada Postgraduate Pharmacy Fellowship Award has been discontinued, as funding is no longer available.

Recognizing the time required to prepare faculty awards submissions and peer review, the deadline for faculty awards is extended to June 15, 2021. As award winners do not have the opportunity to attend an awards gala at CPERC to recognize their achievements, the student winners will be provided a cash award, in lieu of the travel grant. For the faculty winners, the travel grant and complimentary CPERC registration will be deferred to the winner’s choice of the 2022 or 2023 AFPC conference.

Award applications, support/reference letters and all supporting documents must be submitted via email to the AFPC Executive Director on or before the specified due date.
