Anthony Di Monte
Anthony Di Monte is the General Manager of Emergency and Protective Services for the City of Ottawa, overseeing the municipality’s By-law and Regulatory Services, Fire Service, Paramedic Service, and Security and Emergency Management. Mr. Di Monte has been involved in public service his entire career. He was certified as an Advanced Care Paramedic at Dawson College in Montreal. His management training was completed at McGill University and Université de Montreal (H.E.C.).
Mr. Di Monte has held several senior positions in numerous paramedic services, starting as Regional Director for Urgences Santé Montréal. In 1999, he assumed the responsibility of York Region Emergency Medical Services and was the first Chief and General Manager of EMS. Under his leadership, he structured and amalgamated the previous operators into one municipal government organization.
In 2001, he became the first Chief of EMS for the newly amalgamated City of Ottawa and coordinated and implemented the delivery of a single EMS service for the municipality.
As General Manager, Mr. Di Monte has overseen several major projects that have impacted the community, including the Ottawa Fire Services 2015 Station Location Study which introduced a modern response standard for the City’s fire service based on the risk of each community, the Paramedic Service Review which will see considerable investments into the service, and the implementation of the Vehicle-for-Hire By-law which led to the licensing of one private transportation company.
Current projects include multiple council directed By-Law Reviews, Radio Project implementation, and two new fire station builds.
