If you are already registered in another Canadian province, you may be eligible to apply for registration through labour mobility. The criteria for labour mobility applications are:

  1. You are current and fit to practice and registered with a recognized provincial paramedicine regulator in another Canadian province.
  2. You meet all the Alberta College of Paramedics registration requirements.

Note: The Ontario Advanced Emergency Medical Care Attendant (AEMCA) is a certification exam in isolation; therefore, we require validation of employment within the Base Hospital system. If you are not employed through the Base Hospital system in Ontario, but hold your AEMCA certification, you can be considered for equivalency. Please review the Substantial Equivalency page for further information.

TO APPLY

To apply for registration, you must submit a complete and valid labour mobility application including supporting documentation and pay the required registration fees.

Timeline

The registration process for out-of-province applicants includes registration submission, completion of requirements, validation of education, employment and references, therefore the timeline for completion may take up to 90 days.

CONDITIONS

Applicants who gain registration in Alberta through labour mobility may have additional conditions on their practice permit. The conditions will be applied based on your specific qualifications, and serve to support your transition into Alberta to ensure all provision of care to Albertans meets College standards.
