Why Work For Us?
This opportunity is an excellent way for fledgling paramedics to practice and enhance their medical skills and gain the experience needed to be a valuable contributor to a paramedic service. While seasoned paramedics can experience a change of pace and a way to supplement their income and diversify their skills. Our medics get the opportunity to experience the limelight by working on film sets and movie shoots. Some have even been asked to work in the background as extras. Our medics have also been able to play a valuable part in school and community sporting events. canaPHEM medics do not transport and are primarily on the scene to monitor the situation, provide information and support to the community. If you want to experience the relaxed side of being a medic while working for a growing company with ample opportunities for advancement then apply now!
