Before submitting your request, please note the following scheduling requirements:

  • Medical coverage includes an ambulance and two paramedics dedicated to the event site. In case of a large-scale event, additional coverage may be needed; we will let you know if this is the case
  • The fee per staffed ambulance is $134.50 per hour. The minimum number of hours invoiced per event shall be no less than four (4) hours
  • After you submit your request, a contract will be prepared. You will be contacted to formalize the process.

In the case of cancellation

A written notification is required 48 hours prior to the start hour of coverage. An administrative fee of $25 will be charged. If the notification is received with less than (2) hours, the total fee of the event plus the administration fee shall be paid


Once we are contacted for medical coverage for a special event, a contract between the City and your organization is drafted up and signed by both parties. This contract includes the scheduled hours for coverage.

Once the event is completed, the contract is sent to our Finance Department to generate an invoice which is then sent to your organization. Please ensure in your request you include information on who to send this invoice to for repayment.
