The College of Paramedics of Nova Scotia is seeking government approval for revisions to the Paramedics Act and will be consulting stakeholders on the proposed amendments.
A Legislation Review Committee has met regularly over the course of more than a year to review the Act and its Regulations and to prepare recommendations to the Council of the College for revisions.
