What We Do
The association is an organization of elected representatives. The Association is designed to support the uniting of practitioners throughout the province so collective concerns and ideas can be addressed locally, regionally and provincially.
With the input and participation of paramedics throughout the province, the Association can create a strong representative voice to advocate on behalf of paramedics for the betterment of the profession.
The Association conducts and supports research that contributes to the advancement of paramedicine, works to promote the voice of its members and practitioner needs to stakeholders and the public while at the same time, through innovation, sets standards of excellence and recognizes agencies that meet them. All of this is done with a goal of ensuring each paramedic has access to resources that provide the best possible support for their practice needs and professional growth, as well as creating safe conditions to practice in.
