Thank you to all those who joined us in Charlottetown in October 2018 to celebrate the achievements of Ray Murphy, the 2018 recipient of the Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy's Pillar of Pharmacy Award! The CFP established this Award in 1997 to recognize individuals who have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to help advance the profession of pharmacy.
Ray Murphy is founder of Murphy’s Pharmacies in PEI. His accomplishments as a pharmacist, business owner and community leader are innumerable. Most recently, in December 2017, the Governor General of Canada appointed Murphy to the Order of Canada, this country’s highest civilian honour (this follows his appointment to the Order or Prince Edward Island in 2007). In 2016, Murphy was named Entrepreneur of the Year by the Greater Charlottetown Area of Commerce.
