First step: COPR Assessment Process
The College uses the Canadian Organization of Paramedic Regulators (COPR) to assess the credentials of international applicants before the College can consider international applicants for provincial registration. COPR will assess at both the Primary Care Paramedic and Advanced Care Paramedic levels.
Please note the COPR assessment must be completed before beginning the registration process with the College.
Visit https://www.copr.ca/assessment-of-international-applicants/ for more information and to complete the COPR Assessment of International Applicants Process.
Second step: Apply for Registration
Once you have completed the COPR assessment, you can apply for provisional registration with the College.
Please complete the following steps:
- Submission of the Registration Application. You must include all material requested in the application.
- Complete payment of required fee(s). The payment of a non-refundable application fee is required.
- Once your application is approved by the College, complete payment of your practice permit.
For applicants who have practiced or were educated in Canada but are not regulated please contact registration@ABparamedics.com to discuss the College’s equivalency requirements.
