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.

Supporting the person behind the uniform.

A central focus and concern for the EMS Foundation is the mental health and resiliency of EMS first responders. Our key project for 2021/22 is the creation of Alberta's first permanent memorial to honor EMS Fallen Members, the Alberta Fallen Paramedic Memorial, to be installed on the Edmonton Legislature grounds.

Our Mission

The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Foundation is a charitable organization enhancing excellence in paramedic care by:
