About us

The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Foundation is a registered charity. We are separate from, but supportive of, the work of the uniformed Emergency Medical Services in Alberta. We help in three ways:

  1. We financially enable new initiatives and research that benefits Alberta Paramedics,
  2. We support preventative education and community outreach, and
  3. We preserve the history of EMS in Alberta

The EMS Foundation is the oldest such Foundation in Canada.


Supporting the person behind the uniform

A key theme and concern for the EMS Foundation in 2017-2018 is the mental resiliency of EMS first responders.
