Collin Dares ACP BScP

Collin grew up in Sable River, NS and moved to PEI in 2009 to follow his dream of becoming a paramedic. He practiced with Island EMS from 2010 until 2022 before moving home, with his wife Samantha and dog Mika, to start a new chapter as an Advanced Care Paramedic in the Emergency Department at Dartmouth General Hospital. Collin is always seeking out new opportunities to learn and grow – personally and professionally. This self-concept has seen him through experience as a Holland College Learning Manager, PAPEI board executive, and graduate of the BSc Paramedicine program at UPEI. Outside of his commitment to lifelong learning and paramedicine his passions include traveling, music, food and the great outdoors – just as long as he’s living outside of his comfort zone.
