Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, EOWC member municipalities have experienced increased pressures on their paramedic services. During the year ahead, the EOWC is advocating for permanent, sustainable and predictable funding to support paramedic services as well as community paramedicine efforts.
The EOWC is also calling on the Provincial Government to modernize the dispatch system to improve the prioritization of calls and overall level of service. Additionally, the Caucus is advocating for the Provincial Government and associated stakeholders to reduce offload delays at hospitals which would allow paramedics to spend more hours serving their communities.
The EOWC has been working with ApexPro Consulting Inc. to update the EOWC’s 2019 Review of Eastern Ontario Paramedic Services Situation Overview report. The report provides a current regional level data overview of paramedic services. The report and recommendations can be found below.
