The College Council is accountable for the overall governance of the Alberta College of Paramedics and, therefore, the Council serves to:

  • set the strategic direction for the College
  • develop and approve Council Governance policies
  • ensure that the College meets all legislated and regulatory requirements
  • approve annual practitioner registration fees
  • approve the College’s annual operational budget
  • ensure that the Registrar/Executive Director provides leadership and efficiently conducts College business

How Council is elected

All registered practitioners have the opportunity to participate in the governance of their profession through the College’s nomination and election process.

Practitioners are elected by their peers for three-year terms during the College’s annual election process. All nominated practitioners must take a course on governance prior to the election. Immediately following the election, Council members choose a president, vice-president and treasurer.

If you’re interested in running for a seat on Council, nomination details are provided on the website and correspondence is sent directly to all practitioners when nominations open. Watch the website and your email for details and nomination forms.

Attend a meeting
Registered practitioners and interested members of the public are welcome to attend College Council meetings, but space is limited. Anyone interested can register to attend and get meeting information. Contact the College if you are planning to attend by emailing the Executive Office.

Due to scheduling challenges with individual councilor calendars, meeting dates and/or times may be changed on short notice. By registering to attend, any such changes can be communicated with you.
