We typically recruit new Frontenac Paramedics for spring intake between December and February. Leadership positions are posted as they open throughout the year. We usually receive many more applications than we have open positions. Open external competitions are posted on the Frontenac County Current Opportunities page. Open positions are also shared on social media on the Frontenac Paramedics X feed, and the County of Frontenac Facebook page. Learn more about Frontenac Paramedics and our Plan for the Future.
