Pillar of Pharmacy


Bill Wilson is the 2023 recipient of the Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy’s prestigious Pillar of Pharmacy Award.

Wilson has witnessed—and helped shepherd—a lot of change in the profession since graduating from the University of Saskatchewan’s pharmacy faculty more than 50 years ago. Having worked primarily in hospital pharmacy practice, Wilson has always been deeply committed to patient safety and the role that pharmacists play as system leaders in safe medication practice. He retired as Director of Pharmacy for Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, in 2016.
