Pursuant to The Paramedics Act, it is the duty of the College to serve and protect the public.
To serve and protect the public through registering, licensing, educating, and disciplining members of the college, providing a continuum of regulatory oversight, and exercising our powers and discharging our responsibilities in the public interest.
This is done through fostering:
- professional growth and support;
- competent, ethical practice from our members; and
- professional self-regulation for EMRs, EMTs, EMT-A's, and Paramedics
Collectively building a profession that is appropriately utilized by those we serve, using the trust, respect, and knowledge that we possess.
