Giving You The Training To Save Lives

Canadian Aerospace Medicine and Aeromedical Transport Association (CAMATA) is a national organization committed to the advancement of expertise of health and aviation professionals actively involved or interested in aerospace medicine and aeromedical transport in the fields of direct patient care, education, research, and administration. The development and delivery of quality air medical training is key to our commitment to the promotion of quality air medical services.


CAMATA, a non-profit organization, was formed in the late 1980’s in order to provide a forum for improved communication between the provincial and territorial governments, air medical providers, service users and aviation personnel involved in air medical service delivery.

Since that time, CAMATA has worked on numerous projects, including development of training programs, participation on the Transport Canada Canadian Aviation Regulation Advisory Council (CARAC) Technical Committee on air medical operations, Canadian Association of Pediatric Health Centers (CAPHC) Education Working Group, CAPHC Interfacility Transport Working Group, and Accreditation Canada’s Medical Transport Working Group. CAMATA’s main interest continues to be the development and provision of related educational programs.

In 1995, CAMATA developed and delivered the first CAMATA Air Medical Training Program Level I. This course is taught across Canada and in Trinidad and Tobago to hundreds of RNs, physicians, LPNs, Paramedics, EMTs and Registered Respiratory Therapists each year. In addition, pilots, dispatchers and program managers audit the program to enhance their knowledge of the challenges of air medical operations. Other educational programs are developed or under development, all of which are designed to support health care providers and aviation personnel in the provision of the best possible air medical services.

CAMATA is committed to advance the science and art of Aerospace Medicine and Aeromedical Transport through:

  • stimulating study within the field
  • disseminating knowledge
  • disseminating knowledge
  • maintaining an active national organization, with appropriate representation from all groups
  • establishing and maintaining on-going cooperation with national and international sciences and organizations concerned with Aeromedicine
