Government Announcement on Advanced Care Paramedics

The Government Announced during the proposed 2020-21 budget today that:

“All certified advanced care paramedics will be allowed to practice to their full scope to advance response capabilities across this province.”

CUPE Local 4848’s Executive Board are excited the government is looking into increasing the standard level of care for New Brunswickers by making this commitment in respect to the Advanced Care Paramedics who are licenced to practice at this level.

We intend to be in contact with the employer and our government counterparts to find out what this announcement will look like in its reality. Once we have more solid information, we will have that released immediately.

Respectfully,

Andrew McLean
President, Local 4848
