Donation to John Abbott College Paramedic Care Students

John Abbott College Foundation is very pleased to announce the donation of an ambulance to our Paramedic Care program by the Coopérative des paramédics de l’Outaouais.

“John Abbott College is the only CEGEP in Québec to offer the Paramedic Care program in English. We have been offering this program for over 10 years and, year in and year out, about 100 students are enrolled in this program. One of the essential tools for student learning is without a doubt the ambulance that is used in all our classes,” says program chair Martin Poirier.

Gordon Brown, Academic Dean at John Abbott College added, “The ambulance is an essential tool for developing students’ skills and helping them reach their full potential. We are very grateful for the generosity of Coopérative des paramédics de l’Outaouais.”

“It is very important for the Coopérative des paramédics de l’Outaouais to work with the various emergency pre-hospital care programs across the province, to support our future paramedics. It is a pleasure for us to give back and thus to ensure our support for these students who are the future of our profession,” Marie-Ève D’Aoust, Co-op’s Chief Operating Officer.
