Craig Plain

Craig was born and raised in British Columbia. Having a father as a pharmacist Craig learned from a young age the considerable impact one can make as a frontline health-care worker. After managing a community pharmacy in Surrey for 10 years Craig found an opportunity to practice in an innovative environment in Vancouver with a vision to expand the scope of pharmacy practice.

Craig’s unique and fresh ideas for achieving best health outcomes ultimately gained him national attention as winner of the 2017 Canadian Pharmacist of the Year. Craig shares his expertise in the role of lecturer, preceptor, and consultant with local and national health focused organizations.

After a family decision to move his wife and 3 kids to Kelowna, Craig is working to modernize the pharmacy experience for all people in the Okanagan.
