Guardian pharmacies are independently owned and operated by pharmacists who believe in investing in the best possible pharmacy care. They are all united in a shared commitment of being your local community pharmacy. At Guardian pharmacies, patients and customers have the best of both worlds, they are independent pharmacies that are also members of Drug Trading, Canada's oldest and largest independent pharmacy services provider.
The Guardian pharmacy banner program was first established in 1964 to provide differentiated pharmacy services. Since then they have become one of the most trusted names in pharmacy care and patients have a tremendous loyalty to our pharmacies. There is pride of ownership at Guardian that is combined with an unwavering commitment to the profession and to patient care.
Across the Guardian network each pharmacy offers unique areas of services and specialities ranging from compounding, to long-term care and home health care, to expertise in areas of diabetes management and much more.
The face of independent pharmacy is changing. Across the Drug Trading network you'll see a variety of stores from smaller clinic pharmacies to 10,000 sq. ft. promotional stores. Guardian pharmacies offer modern store environments, while keeping the unique personality of each store owner and the community. Guardian pharmacies can be found in nine provinces and the Northwest Territories.
