Launched in 2018, ASOP Canada is united with ASOP Global members and observers by a single mission to create an environment that enables patients to buy their medicines online safely, in countries where it is legal for them to do so. ASOP Canada does not campaign for the introduction of online pharmacy where it is not already legal.
ASOP Canada works with its members to educate stakeholders about the risks posed by illegal online sellers of medications, and what the risks mean to the safety and security of Canadians.
ASOP Canada Chapter is a program of the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies which is a U.S. nonprofit tax-exempt social welfare organization organized to promote global policies and programs for improved patient safety involving online distribution of pharmaceutical products. ASOP Canada Chapter is not a separate legal entity.
