HPRAC's work on this referral is now complete.


HPRAC Research on the Regulation of Paramedics under the RHPA

Along with other research, the following reviews were completed in support of the final recommendation: 

The Ontario Paramedic Association's (OPA) Application to Regulate Paramedics and EMAs under the RHPA

HPRAC received an  application from the OPA seeking regulation of Paramedics and EMAs under the RHPA. The application was posted for comments during consultation period.

Stakeholder Feedback on OPA's Proposal

Submissions were made to HPRAC through an online survey portal; or by submitted a survey to HPRAC through other means; or by providing views in the form of a letter.  

Stakeholder Feedback, Part I focuses on survey submissions.

Stakeholder Feedback, Part II focuses on non-survey format submissions.

Following consultation, stakeholders had an additional 2 week period to comment on the submissions received.
