Default Becoming a Paramedic in Canada

Hello,

I'm pretty much set on wanting to move to Canada to become a PCP with my UK Paramedic registration. I am about to graduate a 2 year University programme, and I can see that Paramedics are Skill Level B on the immigration part of the website, meaning they qualify for express entry (permanent residence) based on having a job offer in a skilled Canadian profession.

I found a thread on here but it was from 2008, and obviously a lot will have changed in that time so I figured it was better to start a new one!

Has anybody on here recently been through the process, or knows the best way to get a job offer? I understand I will have to have my qualifications vetted for reciprocity.

Also I can see that the immigration demand is less about specifically being a 'Paramedic', and more about being an EMS Technician or Paramedic, with at least a 2 year University education in that subject.

I was an EMT for 2 years before becoming a Paramedic, and since I will have this University education, would this count for my required 1 year of work experience?

Any and all info is hugely welcomed, and thank you in advance!

Hello and welcome to BE!

Which Province do you think you are most likely to want to move to? Each Province has Provincial Regulations and specific processes to ascertain equivalency of your qualifications.

This might be of use to you: http://paramedic.ca/site/faq?nav=02 and http://paramedic.ca/site/links?nav=02

My nephew is a paramedic, but he qualified here so am unable to give any advice on this, sorry!

Hey,

I’m a Paramedic in Scotland looking to move to Canada. I’ve only had my registration for a year but was a technician for 4. I’m currently 2/3 of the way through my BSc (Scotland do HND still and not BSc).

What province are you honking about going to?

We have a friend who just qualified in BC, now trying to get hired. Paramedics in BC are paid by the call, so there are more vacancies in quieter locations.
