Did you know that 9 out of 10 Canadians will develop high blood pressure in their lifetime? High blood pressure, also called hypertension, can cause strokes, heart attacks, heart failure, and kidney failure.

High blood pressure often has no signs or symptoms, which is why it is called the “silent killer.” When it is detected early, you can get the treatment necessary to reduce your risks. Our pharmacy provides free blood pressure monitoring, so come in today to check yours. We also sell a variety of home blood pressure monitors.

We will provide you with a blood pressure card that records your results, and you can go online to print these results before your appointment. If you do not have a computer, we can print it for you.
