Leaders in Emergency Medical Services
In 1959 the SRA-Saskatchewan Road Ambulance was created as a non-profit organization to answer the need for a unified body to represent the ambulance profession in Saskatchewan. The organization was established to provide guidance, support and a common voice on behalf of all ambulance services within Saskatchewan.  In later years, the name changed to SAA-Saskatchewan Ambulance Association.

In May 2000, the Saskatchewan Ambulance Association merged with the Saskatchewan Emergency Medical Services Leadership Forum to create the Saskatchewan Emergency Medical Services Association. Building on the foundation of the past, SEMSA continues to forge a future for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in this province.

Today SEMSA represents 82 out of 110 ambulance services within the province of Saskatchewan. Our mission today has evolved to play a large role in the "best practices" for this province. However, we remain grounded to our past providing guidance, support and a common voice on behalf of all.
