Protecting Lives, Strengthening Communities

Welcome to Civil Defence Canada

Civil Defence refers to the organized effort to protect civilians and minimize the effects of emergencies and disasters, such as natural calamities, severe weather events, industrial accidents, or public health crises. It involves preparedness, response, and recovery measures aimed at safeguarding lives and property.

At Civil Defence Canada, our mission is to ensure the safety and resilience of our communities in the face of emergencies and disasters. We are committed to providing vital information and resources to help Canadians be ready for any civil defence situation that may arise.

Whether you are an individual, a family, or a community, our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and tools needed to effectively respond to emergencies and protect lives.
