Santo Pasqua is a health care professional leading our front-line Paramedics in his hometown of Hamilton Ontario. As the Deputy Chief of the Hamilton Paramedic Service, he is responsible for Paramedic performance and development, ambulance service operations and regulatory compliance. Santo is an alumni of the University of Guelph (Hon. BSc.(HK)) and Conestoga College (AEMCA) and is a certified Paramedic in the Province of Ontario. He has been involved in numerous community fund raising events over the years such as community Food Drives and taking part in Emergency Services Cook Offs for St Joseph’s Hospital and their mental health programs. Santo’s pride is the Annual Hamilton Paramedic Toy Drive for CityKidz held in early December where the fund raiser has been breaking new records every year for the Paramedic team over the past 17 years.

Santo is proud and honoured to join the CityKidz Board to further support the mission of the organization.
