Important Note:

Real Canadian pharmacies will never send you unsolicited bulk email (spam). Any spam trying to sell you “Canadian” drugs should be deleted immediately. Spam is used by rogue pharmacies and scammers, never by legitimate pharmacies in Canada.

Pharmacy Checker has a useful list of “Rogue Pharmacy Websites” that is extensive and updated often. CIPA lists “Fraudulent Pharmacies” but the list is small and does not mention when it was last updated.
