Welcome to the Public Education page. This area is for all members to stay informed about current public events occurring around the province. Please visit this page regularly, to ensure you are up to date on what’s happening. With your help, use of fun handouts and appearances of our new mascot ‘Bearamedic’, we can increase public awareness of our profession with children and the general public. Please, volunteer today!

Have you recently attended a Public Education event, or an idea for a future event?

If you’ve recently participated in a Public Education event, we want your feedback and pictures! Please email your feedback, pictures or ideas for future events to: public.ed@apbc.ca.
