The national response time goal for paramedics in Canada is 8 minutes 59 seconds, for the most serious emergencies. In the province of British Columbia, this goal is only being met 30% of the time. A lack of resources and support for BC paramedics means that our province’s most highly trained, front line medical professionals are unable to arrive within the 8:59 benchmark, set by the country for 70%, of BC emergencies.
BC deserves better.
