Paramedicine in Ontario: Advice to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care for Consideration of the Application for the Regulation of Paramedics under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991

By the Health Professions Regulatory Advisory Council

March 7, 2014

On June 28th, 2007, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care asked the Health Professions Regulatory Advisory Council (HPRAC) to provide advice on whether paramedics and emergency medical attendants should be regulated under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and if so, what would be the appropriate scope of practice, controlled acts and titles authorized the profession. The referral was reconfirmed by the Minister on February 25, 2009; March 26, 2010; and April 19, 2011.

In preparation for this report, HPRAC conducted key informant interviews, literature, jurisdictional and jurisprudence reviews, and an assessment of the current oversight system, as well as an extensive public consultation program between April and July 2013.
