2020 EMR Exam Dates Deadline for Registration 
April 20, 2020  April 6, 2020 at 4pm 

The April 20, 2020 Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) exam has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the need for social distancing increases and schools and businesses close, we cannot offer the exam in an environment that allows for the safety and well-being of those involved with writing or invigilating the exam.

As we continue to monitor the evolution of this situation, we will provide further direction on the exams currently scheduled for the remainder of the year. All those who have successfully completed an EMR program and can meet the licensing requirements, still have the option of applying for a restricted licence should they so choose.

Anyone who was registered for the April 20, 2020 exam has been contacted directly.
