I do not think you can transfer a US prescription to Canada. You will need a new US prescription.

Years ago before Medicare part D my mom got prescriptions from Canada. Pharmacies set up storefront offices in the US. You brought a new paper prescription to them and they shipped the meds from Canada. This included refills but it started with a new US prescription.

This may answer your question. You'll need a new prescription from your doctor to get the ball rolling. We easily used a Canadian Pharmacy for years before getting on Medicare prescription plan. Saved a LOT of $$.

Also check GoodRX to get a price on your prescription. Even with a prescription plan now we occasionally get it filled through GoodRX to save some money. Normally, any pharmacy in the U.S. can check GoodRX's price for you or you can do it online. We just ask the pharmacist at WalMart to check for us if the prescription we're picking up is expensive.

For prescriptions that are expensive both with my Blue Advantage plan and with my GoodRX I use Marks Marine Pharmacy in Canada. I tell my doctor I need a written prescription for those. He/she writes the RX out old school way. I shoot a picture of it and email it to Marks Marine Pharmacy and follow up with a phone call. Has made several really expensive meds affordable for my wife.

They beat my Part D drug plan by a lot. Generics only I believe. Service has been very fast.

I've never found any savings on his site. Some of my medicine isn't even offered by him.

We spend 3 months in Florida each year and simply go to our local pharmacy in Canada and ask for a 3 month supply, no issues.
I think that is a lot easier than trying to get a prescription renewed while out of country.
