Pan-Canadian Essential Regulatory Requirements

Last updated: July 30, 2021

Time: 12:21 pm


The Canadian Organization of Paramedic Regulators (COPR) is comprised of provincial self-regulating and government regulatory authorities. Embracing their legislated mandates of public protection and their joint responsibility to meet the requirements of the federal Agreement on Internal Trade, on June 16, 2021, the COPR Board of Directors approved the final project charter and funding to develop Pan-Canadian Essential Regulatory Requirements (PERRs).

PERRs will describe the expectations for safe, effective, and ethical performance by paramedics to inform provincial regulatory practice standards and support the use of PERRs by educators, employers, and other key stakeholders. 

Project communications will be posted to this page to assist stakeholders to stay informed.
