Ten years into the original version FPT Ministers responsible for Emergency Management are pleased to announce the third edition.
Reflecting the ever changing emergency management environment and risk landscape, this revised version underscores the linkages between climate change and emergency management, and the need for all areas of society to work together to enhance resilience.
Recognizing that Emergency management is a shared responsibility across all sectors of society, the Emergency Management Framework for Canada (the Framework) aims to guide and strengthen the way governments and partners assess risks and work together to prevent/mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to Canadians.
The Framework supports legal and policy frameworks, programs, activities, standards and other measures in order to enable and inspire all emergency management partners and the whole-of-society in Canada to work in better collaboration to keep Canadians safe.
