Welcome to the Alberta Paramedic Association

We are a non-profit organization built by paramedics, for paramedics. Our goal is to unite and empower Paramedic practitioners across Alberta to lead their own profession.  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. 

Please see the “join us” page for more information.

      FAQ

      A professional association will work towards issues that are overarching to the profession, that are separate from regulatory and collective bargaining functions. These four “pillars” are Advocacy, Public Relations, Continuing Education and Research. 
      No. The Alberta College of Paramedics governs the profession in the public interest, manages education, entry to practice examinations, continuing competence and standards of practice. Advocating in the practitioner’s interests is outside of the College’s mandate. 
      No. The Alberta Paramedic Association is not a union and will not engage in collective bargaining. 
      Unions look out for labor issues like hours of work, pay and working conditions with specific employers through collective bargaining and grievance proceedings. Advocating for a profession’s broader interests is outside of a union’s mandate. 
      No. the Alberta Paramedic Association is a voluntary membership organization. The goal however, is to provide such value for your money, that it would make very little sense not to be a member. 
      The Regional EMS Foundation in Grande Prairie and the EMS Foundation in Calgary are very locally specific organizations, which support local initiatives for specific services. The Alberta Paramedic Association is taking a larger and more inclusive approach for all practitioners in Alberta regardless of area of practice and geographic location.
