Together saving more lives

Member Agencies

During humanitarian crises, member agencies speak to Canadians with one voice, provide direct access to disaster and response information, coordinate spokespersons and share resources, including a single phone centre, website and communications team. When disaster strikes, each member agency brings its specific expertise to implementing humanitarian programs. Read more about each of our agencies below.
