The Government of Ontario is expanding the number of spaces in paramedic programs at colleges across the province, resulting in an addition of over 300 new seats in primary care paramedic programs. 14 colleges will offer expanded enrolment in the upcoming academic year: Algonquin College, Cambrian College, Centennial College, Collège Boréal, Collège La Cité, Conestoga College, Confederation College, Durham College, Fanshawe College, Georgian College, Lambton College, Northern College, St Clair College, and St Lawrence College. Students in their first year of the program will also receive funding for tuition, books, and other fees through the Ontario Learn and Stay Grant. “There is a significant demand for paramedics in communities across the province,” explained ON Deputy Premier and Minister of Health Sylvia Jones, noting that the expansion will help address this demand for “years to come.”
