ParamedicToronto, ON

Toronto EMS is the sole provider of emergency medical response for the City of Toronto: a service district encompassing 650 square kilometers with a daytime population of 3.5 million people. This makes Toronto EMS the largest municipal paramedic ambulance service in Canada, and one of the most comprehensive pre-hospital emergency care systems in the world. 

Toronto EMS Paramedics are college-trained professionals who are highly skilled in all aspects of pre-hospital emergency medicine. They treat a wide variety of injuries and medical conditions, while providing supportive patient care and safe transportation to an appropriate medical facility. An advanced computer-aided dispatch system linked to a 9-1-1 system means the time from receiving a call to the arrival of a paramedic crew is only a matter of minutes. In many instances, the initial emergency care rendered by a paramedic is the deciding factor between life and death, temporary or permanent disability, a brief confinement or prolonged hospitalization for a patient. In critical situations, paramedics are required to demonstrate leadership, well-developed human relations skills, rapid decision-making, and a high degree of empathy for both the patients and their families. 

Paramedics are the most visible EMS staff on the streets of Toronto, however, the successful operation of the Toronto EMS system requires teamwork from every aspect of the service. There are four main Emergency Medical Services (EMS) divisions, each administered by four Deputy Chief/Directors and supervised by one Chief/General Manager. 

Toronto EMS always accepts resumes for full-time paramedic positions. Interested applicants should submit their resumes to be considered for the Centralized Paramedic Competency Recruitment Testing. All applicants will receive a package outlining the recruitment process and dates available for testing. Applicants for paramedic positions must possess an Ontario Advanced Emergency Medical Care Assistant (EMCA) Certificate or be considered pending or equivalent, and a valid Ontario class “F” driver’s license. Detailed information on this process can also be found on the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care web site. Applicants from jurisdictions outside the Province of Ontario without their Advanced Emergency Medical Care Assistant (A-EMCA) designation will be required to enter the equivalency process with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care in order to establish their qualifications to work in the Province of Ontario.
