Emergency Medical Assistants Licensing Board
The Emergency Medical Assistants Licensing Board is responsible for examining, registering and licensing all emergency medical assistants (EMAs) in B.C., including first responders.
The board, under the authority of the Emergency and Health Services Act, sets licence terms and conditions, and mandates competency requirements. In addition, the board investigates complaints and conducts hearings where necessary.
The board has three members, all appointed. By law the board must include a licensed EMA and a medical practitioner. The third member sits as the board chair and brings an expertise in arbitration and labour law.
