Canada gets its first national Emergency Management Strategy

Canadian Federal, Provincial and Territorial (FPT) Ministers responsible for emergency management met recently to release the country’s first ever Emergency Management Strategy (EM) and to discuss progress made on a number of shared priorities in emergency management in Canada.  

Delivering on a commitment from the previous meeting of FPT Ministers in May 2018, Ministers formally approved and released the ‘Emergency Management Strategy for Canada: Toward a Resilient 2030’. 

This strategy is the culmination of more than two years of work and reflects engagement with federal, provincial and territorial partners and stakeholders. The strategy supports a whole-of-society approach to emergency management, outlines key priority areas to build a more resilient Canadian society by 2030, and aligns with the United Nations Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

Ultimately, the strategy provides a roadmap to strengthen Canada' ability to better prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.
