"Is it live, or is it Memorex?"

People of a certain age will remember that classic TV commercial, where Ella Fitzgerald sang a note that shattered a wine glass. But you didn't know if she was actually singing, or if it was a Memorex recording, proving that the audiotape was just as good as the real thing.

Today, it's even more difficult to tell what's real and what isn't. In an era of easy manipulation, consumers need to be careful to know what's real, and what might not be. This is most certainly true in the world of online pharmaceutical sales.

Safe Canadian Pharmacies

There are many websites out there who say they're Canadian or use the words "Canada pharmacy" in their name or their website. Some even steal the CIPA seal and use it without permission (CIPA works with law enforcement to pursue action against these sites). And the U.S. pharmaceutical industry, eager to discredit lower prices available from Canada and scare consumers, is quick to make anything Canadian or carrying a Maple Leaf sound like a fraud.

Here's the reality: just like in any industry, there are bad apples in the bunch. Consumers do need to exercise caution, and make sure they're ordering from safe, legitimate Canadian pharmacies that are authorized to display the CIPA seal. CIPA member pharmacies have a 100% perfect safety record over more than 15 years, during which time we've filled more than 38,000,000 prescriptions. We maintain this perfect safety record because of our strict policies on where our medications come from, how we employ licensed pharmacists to review each prescription and consult with patients, how we only accept signed prescriptions from licensed doctors, and how we run pharmacies that serve Canadians and Americans reliably on a daily basis.

CIPA is the authority on verification of legitimate Canadian pharmacies that meet strict safety protocols.
