The College of Paramedics of Manitoba is the Regulatory Body established by the Government of Manitoba on June 1, 2018, with the enactment of the practice of paramedicine regulation. The purpose of the College is to serve and protect the public interest by fulfilling the legislated mandate and the authority granted to the organization, as part of the Regulated Health Professions Act.
On December 1, 2020, the College of Paramedics of Manitoba General Regulation and the practice of paramedicine regulation amended came into force, and the the College became fully operational. The College of Paramedics of Manitoba protects public interest by setting the requirements for Registration/Practice/Renewal; by setting the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics for Paramedics; by setting the standards by which paramedics must demonstrate Clinical Competency; by administering Professional Conduct concerns through the receipt of complaints, investigating complaints and rendering appropriate decisions to protect the public, including those of discipline; and by setting the Standards for Education and Training of Paramedics in the Province of Manitoba.
The College works cooperatively with other Manitoba Health Care Regulators, Paramedic Employers, Unions, and Professional Associations. Pan Canadian standards for regulation of Paramedics are established through our participation as a member of the Canadian Organization of Paramedic Regulators (COPR).
