New Canadian Paramedic Profile

Dear Members: 

Please find attached the new Canadian Paramedic Profile (formally the NOCP’s) that we have sent out for public review and comment.  

The new profile, which represents one of the most significant changes in the Profession, was developed by a wide stakeholder group at the request of the Paramedic Association of Canada. The new profile, which was modelled off the physician “CanMeds” is one of the foundations for a baccalaureate entry to practice for all paramedics in Canada by 2025.  

Please review the Roles, Standards of Practice and Ethics documents.  

Feedback can be sent to me as the BC Chapter Chair of PAC to be forwarded to the working group.  Feedback will be open until 31 March.
