Fit2Sit

Pilot program returns paramedics to the community as quickly as possible.

In October 2020, Peel Regional Paramedic Services launched Fit2Sit, a pilot program in partnership with William Osler Health System.

The first phase of the Fit2Sit program has been successful. It has improved the availability of ambulances on our roads and decreased triage wait times.

The second phase will focus on expanding the program to include the Trillium and Credit Valley hospitals in Mississauga.
