Welcome to the Alberta Paramedic Association
We are a non-profit organization built by paramedics, for paramedics. Our goal is to create a unified voice for practitioners in Alberta and resonate that voice across the country. We believe in operating an association that works to collaborate the resources of practitioners and stakeholders across Alberta to attain goals that were otherwise out of reach.
The Alberta Paramedic Association is built by practitioner membership and volunteers. We need your help to grow and effect change. We are comprised of a volunteer working base including our board of directors, managers, and committees.
