Paramedic Licence Plates

Manitoba’s EMS providers provide assistance to those in need every day, across the province. These plates are a way of recognizing all that you do.

During some of life’s most challenging moments, we depend on paramedics’ training and expertise to assist in those emergency situations, when they are needed the most.

This specialty plate is a way to highlight the accomplishments and contributions of paramedics as a vital component of Manitoba’s health care system.

Who qualifies for Paramedic Licence Plates

Currently active or retired paramedics, including either those paid on-call or volunteer, will be eligible to purchase this new specialty plate.

Immediate family (spouses, common-law partners, dependents and parents) of current, retired or fallen EMS providers also qualify.


The cost of the plates is $70 per vehicle, with $30 from every sale going towards the Canadian Mental Health Association (Manitoba and Winnipeg region).

What vehicles quality

All private passenger vehicles such as cars, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, farm trucks qualify for these plates. Motorcycles and mopeds are not eligible for paramedic specialty plates.

Use them with your vehicle(s) or as a keepsake

If you meet the eligibility criteria and are the registered owner of one or more vehicles that qualify, you can apply for a Paramedic Licence Plate for all of them. Only one set of plates will be issued per vehicle.

Or, if you don’t own any vehicles, you can still apply for one set of these licence plates as a keepsake.

You cannot transfer your plates to someone else.

How to apply

Complete the application form.

The Paramedic Association of Manitoba will verify your provincial EMS licence number to confirm your eligibility, and will forward to MPI for processing on your behalf.

Please forward the completed application form with payment to the association for signature and endorsement.

Note: When a family member is applying for a Paramedic Licence Plate, the qualifying paramedic must sign the application form to verify that the family member is eligible. Family members of a fallen EMS provider simply need to specify the paramedic's name.

You’ll receive your plates by mail with a set of instructions on how to activate them.
