Eligibility

If you are a paramedic practitioner registered in another Canadian province, you may submit an application for equivalency recognition and registration if you meet all the following criteria:

  1. You have applied for and passed the registration examination in the Canadian province where you completed your program of study.
  2. You are current and fit to practice, and registered with a recognized provincial paramedicine regulator in another Canadian province.
  3. You meet all the Alberta College of Paramedics registration requirements.

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.

As a registered practitioner of the profession, you will be subject to continuing competence and registration renewal requirements. You are also required to abide by all legislative and College requirements, policies and standards. Practitioners found to have contravened College policy are subject to review, investigation and, potentially, discipline.

The College has established an online course for this purpose. More information relating to jurisprudence will be forwarded to you.

English fluency

Professional practice in Alberta requires practitioners to be fluent and proficient in the English language. The College may require you to demonstrate your fluency and proficiency in English in accordance with its English Language Proficiency Policy.

Change of status completed out of province

If you are already registered with the Alberta College of Paramedics and wish to change your designation in this province but have upgraded your education, completed an examination and upgraded your designation in another province, a new and complete labour mobility application is required. Fees may be adjusted as required.
