Since February 2014, your Provincial Vice Presidents have been involved in a national working group to establish a national professional liabilty insurance program for paramedics. This insurance is at a significantly reduced premium and deductible from most other programs in Canada. In additon to coverage for liability claims, the program also offers free legal advice and costs of legal fees for EMALB hearings.
Although insurance is not a requirement in BC for licensure, the union would strongly reccomend that you consider this insurance for the EMALB coverages alone. This is even more important if you provide paramedic care for a service outside of BCAS.
