Your Connection to Canada’s Volunteering Community

Ready for Crisis

In the next 10 years, Canada can expect to experience more severe storms, more flooding and droughts. Extreme weather is now a reality. We also face the risk of health-related crises.

But according to the latest research, there are gaps in how we plan for disasters. In particular, many communities aren’t ready to protect vulnerable citizens in times of crisis.

To fill the gaps, a group of voluntary sector and emergency management organizations have built resources for communities. This information is meant to aid organizations and communities in preparing for potential disasters.
