In September, the College shared that it would be recruiting for a new position of Deputy Registrar to work closely with the Registrar and engage with a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure the effective regulation of the paramedic profession in Alberta.

The College is pleased to introduce the new Deputy Registrar, Rhea Bell. She will be starting in April 2024 after enjoying a few more months of maternity leave.
