The Canadian Organization of Paramedic Regulators is rapidly becoming a fully functioning organization.
In our first year (2010/2011) we have elected an Executive Committee, established standing committees, drafted by-laws and submitted our application for incorporation, created a strategic plan and implemented a website to communicate with our members and stakeholders. We have secured funding for a major project aimed at reducing barriers to labour mobility for paramedics in Canada and have made significant progress to complete that project.
Each of our members has supported the organization with funding and we are in the process of hiring a support person to help ensure COPR continues to move ahead on its mission to facilitate collaboration of Canadian regulators in the development of a common approach to paramedic regulation. Our first Annual General Meeting was held in St. John’s Newfoundland in June 2011, and we look forward to connecting and partnering with our stakeholders in the future to support and promote best practice amongst paramedic regulators in Canada.
I hope that our new website will provide you with the information about COPR that you are looking for. We would welcome any questions you may have, or suggestions about how to improve our site.
