Entry-Level Pharmacy Program?

A photo of BlackEyes BlackEyes
I've been hearing a lot about UofT and Waterloo trying to change the pharmacy route from 2 years of undergrad then 4 years of pharmacy school, to just 4 years of pharmacy school. Is this true? If so, when will these changes be effective?

Not true. I think U of T just went (or is soon going to) from requiring one year to two years of undergraduate study before you could get in.

The class of 2015 (i.e. this year's cycle), and forthcoming classes will require applicants to complete 2 years of undergrad studies. This is to coincide with the new curriculum UofT is introducing for the new class, which is similar to Waterloo's, and PharmD. programs in the States.
