Guardian, I.D.A., and Remedy’sRx pharmacies are independently owned and operated by local pharmacists working together with a shared commitment to provide the best possible patient care — well beyond the prescription. While each pharmacy is independently owned, these three brands are part of a family of banner brands under the McKesson Canada Retail Banner network.
