CanadaDrugsOnline.com is a site which claims to be “Canada’s Premier Online Pharmacy”. They say that you can make big savings when you place an order with them. We take a look to find out if they are really as good as they want you to believe.

Domain Name Information
Looking at the domain name information which gives details of the registration shows that this site has been online for a long time. The domain was registered for the first time in 2002 and in our experience pharmacies which have been online for longer are more likely to be legit.
However, what isn’t as good to find is the use of a domain privacy service to hide the contact details of the business which registered the address. This is frequently associated with less reliable stores and so isn’t a good thing to find with this drugstore.
This pharmacy provides a contact address for the business. This address is in Vancouver, Canada which is good for a store which uses Canada in the name of the site. We often find, rather surprisingly, that many Canadian pharmacies have nothing to do with Canada, so this is good.
This address is the same as the location they give for the Canadian dispensing pharmacy and is an address we have seen associated with other Canadian pharmacies.
This pharmacy proudly displays regulatory seals on their homepage for CIPA and Pharmacy Checker. These are the sort of regulatory approvals which are expected from Canadian pharmacies but they are often used fraudulently by pharmacies which don’t have genuine accreditation.
If you click on the seals you should be able to validate that the regulation is genuine. When we click on the seals we do, indeed, find that they are genuinely registered with both CIPA and Pharmacy Checker.
Looking to LegitScript, you might assume because of the previous regulatory approvals that they would give the rating of legitimate to the pharmacy. That isn’t the case, however, with the drugstore only getting their lowest rating of a rogue business which is in violation of the law for where they sell drugs to.
Medication on Sale
The products you find on this store cover a good range of treatments. The prices, however, are more expensive that we frequently find online.
They use, not only, a Canadian pharmacy to dispense their pills but also international fulfillment centers as well. This is done to, presumably, reduce costs but it could also provide a greater risk to customers. With drugs coming from all over the world there is a bigger risk of counterfeit pills entering the supply.
A valid prescription is needed when ordering from this pharmacy. This is in line with what they should be doing to make sure their customers are kept safe with the pills they use. You will need to print out some forms to do this and then mail or fax them to the business.
Payment and Shipping
There is a valid security certificate used on this site and they will only accept payment via:
■ Personal check
■ International money order
These limited payment options will be inconvenient for many customers and is a downside to using this drugstore.
Shipping is a standard cost of $10 for your whole order regardless of the number of products in the order. Though they do dispatch pills all over the world, this standard shipping rate is only for North American customers. If you are ordering from somewhere else you will need to contact customer support for the shipping costs.
Shipping times are expected to be around 2 weeks. This shipping times will vary somewhat, however, because of their use of fulfillment centers all over the world.
Finding many CanadaDrugsOnline.com reviews has been difficult with only a couple of customer responses on Trustpilot. One of the customers was very happy giving the site the full 5 stars and the other had issues with delivery of his order.
This does exactly present a ringing endorsement for the pharmacy and it is disappointing to find so few customer testimonials.
This does, in general, seem to be a safe place to purchase your meds. They have regulatory approvals and they give a genuine Canadian address. They have been in business for a long time and correctly require a prescription with your order.
Despite this, not everything is perfect with slow delivery times and higher prices. We give a rating of 70% trust to this Canadian drugstore.
