International Pharmacy Graduates (IPGs) regardless of education, licensure or experience must obtain a license to practice their profession in Canada. Each province or territory has its own licensing organization that sets the requirements and regulates the practice of the pharmacy profession within the jurisdiction.  Nova Scotia College of Pharmacists is the regulatory body for pharmacy practice in Nova Scotia.
