The EMS Board of Prince Edward Island exists to protect the patients that we serve and to promote quality care through cooperative working relationships among organizations and stakeholders with EMS Interests. As such, all Prehospital emergency medical care professionals must register with the EMS Board in order to practice in the Province of Prince Edward Island.
Currently, there are two levels for Registration in Prince Edward Island, Emergency Medical Technician 1 (EMT 1) and Emergency Medical Technician 3 (EMT 3). The Scope of Practice for both registration levels is the same as the educational profiles maintained in the 2011 version of the National Occupational Competency Profile, developed by the Paramedic Association of Canada.
There are four types of Registration Requests considered by the EMS Board:
- New Registration
- Registration from another Canadian Regulated Jurisdiction
- Registration from any other Jurisdiction (this includes non-regulated jurisdiction in Canada and any jurisdiction outside Canada)
Depending on the type of Registrant, the information required in order for the application to be considered varies greatly. Applicants are responsible to ensure they provide all the required documentation, and complete all requirements of registration within the specified time.
