Paramedic Services Week

The week between May 24 and May 30 is Paramedic Services Week.  It is a time for all Canadians to honour and thank the women and men who answer our calls for medical help.  Whether it is a call to our homes for a medical emergency or a call to a vehicle accident or a fire, Paramedics, often putting themselves in danger, always answer and provide the necessary assistance.

As we deal with COVID-19, paramedics have shown up for Canadians, showing us the very best of courage, compassion and dedication.

On behalf of all the residents of Ward 22, Scarborough-Agincourt, I thank all Paramedics for their service and for the incredible work they do for us every day.

                                  Portrait  appreciation for our Health Care workers,.
