Thirteen years is a long time. That's how old the PPA will
turn next year. Over these many years, we have tried to keep up with the
changes in our professional culture. We started with a focus on community
involvement and volunteer work, integrated a CPR and community safety approach
and added in some incentives to give back to our colleagues who have given
their time to us.
It hasn't always been easy.
We've banded together with other groups to fight attacks on our
profession. It's a battle that will always
need to be fought as other professions deal with changes as well, but something
good usually comes from it; the sense of belonging to something meaningful.
Change has been the theme of the Peel Paramedic Association
in recent years. We've adapted our focus to what best serves our community at a
given time; we've changed our membership structure and we're in the process of
adopting a new structure for our Board of Directors. The most obvious change
however, is our new website!
We thank you for taking the time to check us out. To our
members, we would not exist without your support. For every item you've
donated, every minute you've spent volunteering and every article, post or
video you've read or watched, we sincerely thank you. Your continued support
will help us to improve the Peel Paramedic Association and help us keep up with
the ever evolving world of paramedicine.
Welcome to the new website of the Peel Paramedic Association.
The PPA is a professional body that advances the profession of Paramedicine, advocates on behalf of practitioners and patients and serves our members. This new website reflects our commitment to a more member centric focus as well as a stronger and more involved professional organization. Along with our valuable social media presence through our Facebook and Twitter, the PPA will continue to be a leader in Paramedicine in Peel Region.
The PPA is YOUR organization and a strong voice for Paramedicine provincially. We encourage our members to take part and get involved in the organization. Along with exceptional member benefits, the tools provided through this new website will allow you greater access to participating, moving forward and shaping YOUR profession.
The PPA as a registered charity can not and does not involve itself in labour issues with the Region of Peel. Labour issues are handled by OPSEU Local 277, www.peelparamedics.com
We value and always welcome your thoughts and feedback
