Recently the Paramedic Association of Canada made contact with Irish College of Paramedics to discuss areas of common interest. The PAC, a voluntary professional organisation of paramedicine practitioners across Canada with a mission to advance the profession and it’s representation throughout Canada, has over 14, 000 members.

The Irish College of Paramedics will be meeting a delegation from the Paramedic Association of Canada in June 2016. We intend to discuss areas of common interest including: National Regulation, Registration, Professionalism etc. The PAC is the national voice of Canadian Paramedicine and we have a lot to learn from their organisation. ICoP President Shane recently talked via Skype with both the PAC President Mr. Chris Hood and the Chief Administrative Officer, Mr. Dwayne Forsman about our upcoming plans.

ICoP are eager to meet with our Canadian colleagues and look forward to a potential mutually beneficial professional relationship.
