Co-Pharm is currently available to all residents of Nova Scotia and recently launched in Edmonton, Alberta as well as St. John’s, Newfoundland. The Co-Pharm program is lead by the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council and in collaboration with Genrus United who aims to solve Canada’s pharmacare challenge.  The plan covers roughly 130 medications including mental health and chronic illnesses such as diabetes, asthma, blood pressure and cholesterol.  The program also helps save on some counselling and therapeutic health services in Nova Scotia. Savings have been reported as high as 60-80% off of prescription costs through a network of local pharmacies in Nova Scotia.  The total value of the investment made in this program by the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council is over $100,000.

(valued at up to $95 each)
Message from The Nova Scotia Co-operative Council:

“The last thing Nova Scotians should be worrying about during this economically trying time is being able to afford the everyday prescription medications they need to stay healthy. We hope this donation to Nova Scotians will help ease the financial burden and stress on those who are vulnerable in our region.”
– Dianne Kelderman, CEO

About Co-Pharm

Brought to you by the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council

Born of a partnership between Genrus United and the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council, the goal is to lower the cost of prescription medication for Canadians. 

We believe in the power of unity and the resources of our communities. That is why we partnered with independent pharmacists to deliver the program. 

Subscribers not only access the medication they need at an affordable price, but they also empower their local economy.

Founded by a diverse group of individuals who have witnessed first-hand the impact of high prescription costs on families, it was unanimously decided that the best way to do something about it was by starting right here.
