Although not on your list, Toronto did a Q&A and discussed how professional degree programs like Law and Pharmacy are considered in undergraduate GPA calculation too. I would assume that most schools will follow similar protocols in Ontario for professional degree programs. Your best guess would be to contact the schools directly. If you phone the admissions office they will give you an immediate answer.

You should call to confirm, but I believe Queen's considers law school GPA since pharmacy GPA is considered.

The website also specifically lists which undergraduate courses are not considered in the GPA so it would be fair to assume anything not in that list is included. Specifically: "the following courses of study will not be included in the GPA: naturopathic and chiropractic medicine, consecutive bachelor of education programs, challenge for credit courses, diploma or certificate programs, graduate courses, and undergraduate courses taken as part of a graduate program."

Yes that's correct. But apparently law school courses could be "undergraduate courses taken as part of graduate program". So its a grey area so far.

Definitely just email or call the schools you're interested in to confirm, but personally, I'm under the impression that all the professional school programs are undergraduate programs...

Pharmacy school GPA is included. Also, the fact that they explicitly list chiropractic and naturopathic medicine makes it more likely that it's not considered a graduate program. That last part of the sentence most likely only refers to people doing Masters and PhDs taking undergraduate level courses, because that happens not all that infrequently.
