Look at

Robertson College in the Town Center, I do believe they offer an Accredited Pharmacy Technition course, they even help with job placement after you graduate...I THINK....good luck! I've wanted to take that same course but my health won't allow it right now.

Robertson in Brandon doesn’t offer it anymore. Only Winnipeg.... most jobs prefer you to have the schooling but some will hire you without it and train on the job.

As of Jan 1/ 2014, the title 'pharmacy technician' is protected. Which means that 'on the job training' is limited and not the same as in the past:  
Pathways to Pharmacy Technician Regulation  
While all pharmacy technician applicants must meet the same competencies, there are essentially two pathways to registration.  
Graduates of a CCAPP accredited pharmacy technician program (Option A); and  
Individuals who are currently employed and qualify through prior work experience in pharmacy (Option B).  
As of November 27, 2017, the College Council has set a deadline for the Option B pathway of December 31, 2019. Individuals pursuing Option B must complete and submit all requirements for listing as a pharmacy technician in Manitoba by December 31, 2019. After December 31, 2019, all applicants wishing to become pharmacy technicians will be required to have graduated from an accredited pharmacy technician education program.  
The process to becoming a pharmacy technician in Manitoba may differ based on the individual’s current qualifications and experience.

What about a distance course? ACC offers a few, as do most of the colleges and universities across Canada. Is there anything else you would do besides pharmacy tech?
