President's Message

Welcome to Our Website!

Message from PPA President, Sarah Salvis

It is an honour to be continuing the work started back in 2004.  We have come a long way in those years.  Both the paramedic profession and the Peel Paramedic Association have grown and changed.  It is exciting to consider what incredible things the future holds for both.  I am typing this message during an uncertain time for the Region that hosts this Association.  We may not know what January 1, 2025 has in store for us.  However, I do know that 2024 marks 20 years that the Peel Paramedic Association has existed. 

The PPA began as a volunteer organization involved in the community.  We continue that tradition with several initiatives throughout the year.  However, we have also developed and implemented many programs for the betterment of the public we serve and for the benefit of our members.  The PPA pledges to continue promoting our profession, work that has been ongoing in various forms over the years.  More recently we have officially expanded our scope to include initiatives addressing mental health awareness for paramedics.  We look forward to continuing the great work started by past PPA Presidents, Board Members, and Volunteers.  

As we continue to navigate our way forward during this challenging time, the PPA will be here:  for the paramedics and staff of Peel Region Paramedic Services and the community at large.  We will continue the good work started back in 2004 and we will find our way forward.  I am excited to be serving as President with an exemplary group of volunteers on our Board.  As a team we aim to provide the best value for our members and a greater service to our community.  

We thank you for your interest in the Peel Paramedic Association, and your support of our initiatives, programs, and fundraising drives. Your ongoing support will help us to continue the Peel Paramedic Association’s great work.

Thank you for helping us Think Outside the Ambulance.

The Peel Paramedic Association (PPA) represents paramedics but we are not an employer or labour union. We are part of a national association of over 26,000 paramedics from across Canada. These paramedics volunteer to pay an annual membership fee that is utilized to fund projects for patient care advocacy and professional development.

The PPA is a registered charity and cannot involve itself in labour issues with the Region of Peel. Paramedics in Peel are represented by OPSEU Local 277.

The PPA is Proudly Sponsored by:
