About the College
Effective April 1, the College of Paramedics will be the regulatory body for paramedics in Nova Scotia. Pursuant to the Paramedics Act, it is the duty of the College of Paramedics to serve and protect the public. The College will register and license paramedics, establish educational standards to start and continue your career as a paramedic, and investigate complaints.
All paramedics who wish to work in Nova Scotia on or after April 1st, 2017 must be registered and licensed by the College of Paramedics.
