JIBC paramedicine students training


Public safety in British Columbia will be in the hands of our students. Their training and education are in JIBC’s.

By leaving a gift in your Will to support JIBC and our students, you can help future generations of British Columbians. We can help you choose an area to support that is meaningful to you and best supports public safety education and students. For example, you could support:

  • A specific program and its students, such as in paramedicine or firefighting, by funding training equipment, resources, or student awards and bursaries; or
  • Many programs and students by giving to an area like the library.

It’s a gift to the people and place that you love.

At JIBC, students learn how to save lives, protect communities, respond to emergencies, fight fires, resolve conflict, provide counselling and be ready for working on the front lines every day.

We train those who help keep communities safe and healthy — paramedics, firefighters, municipal police officers, sheriffs, correctional and probation officers, emergency management professionals, and search-and-rescue personnel. We also provide training in areas including conflict resolution, counselling, leadership, and mediation. Our education model emphasizes real-world, hands-on experiential learning and training and is delivered by instructors who have done the jobs themselves.

The nature of JIBC’s education and training compels us to be leaders in Truth and Reconciliation. We are committed to ensuring that Indigenous perspectives are considered, recognized, included, and celebrated in JIBC’s education and workplace practices. JIBC is also committed to championing equity, diversity and inclusion and ensuring we do all that we can to recognize the unique experiences, viewpoints, and identities of all members of our community and beyond.

JIBC's Impact

JIBC has been integral to public safety and justice in British Columbia since 1978, by providing a wide range of specialized education and training to more than 300,000 students. Our impact includes:

  • Delivering programs and courses at six campuses, online and in communities to increase access for students and provide specialized learning environments like the firefighting facility in Maple Ridge.
  • Annually providing education and training to over 30,000 students, led by instructors who understand and have worked in the professions for which we train.
  • Being the leading provider of medical responder and paramedic training in British Columbia. Each year more than 850 new responders and paramedics graduate from our Paramedic Academy programs prepared for careers in pre-hospital medicine and ambulance settings.
  • Helping communities in British Columbia and across Canada prepare for and respond to emergencies for over 30 years, through specialized emergency management education, resources and research.
