Who We Are
As Canada’s leading first aid and safety charity, St. John Ambulance remains committed to our history of caring and saving lives. We’re committed to enabling Canadians improve their health, safety and quality of life through training and community service, and live our mission by practicing the values of teamwork, respect, loyalty, and integrity.
At St. John Ambulance, we focus all of our efforts to ensure people are SET™ with Safety Education & Tools at work, home and play. Through our Training & Products, our impactful Team and History, and our dedicated Charitable Community Services, St. John Ambulance is THE Safety Partner for every resident in British Columbia and the Yukon.
What We Do
Building on a 900-year tradition, St. John Ambulance partners with individuals and organizations to provide first aid and CPR training and products. As a self-funded charity, training and product proceeds support our volunteer-based community care programs. Just some of the organizations we’ve partnered with include BC Hydro, CIBC, BC Ferries, Telus, CN Rail, London Drugs, Sprott Shaw Community College, Mark’s Work Warehouse, McElhanney, and the BC Municipal Safety Association.
In British Columbia and Yukon, we serve our communities through a network of 25 branches and 100 staff members, where we train over 80,000 students annually through our 10,000+ classes. Our volunteers also provide first aid in their communities to keep people safe at public events, and also improve quality of life through community care programs that help seniors, and provide leadership opportunities for our youth. We are consistently campaigning to raise public awareness of first aid, CPR, and safety and strive to have every British Columbian and Yukonian SET™ with Safety Education Tools at work, home and play.
