Emergency Management Training
Since its inception in 2003, Public Safety Canada has exercised its responsibility to provide leadership in emergency management training as set out in the Emergency Management Act through the Canadian Emergency Management College.
Public Safety Canada continues to provide leadership in emergency management training following the closure of the Canadian Emergency Management College in 2012, through a new learning partnership with the Canada School of Public Service. Federal employees will be able to access emergency management courses through a functional learning community. To support learning across the broader emergency management community, the department is working with the Canada School of Public Service to explore ways of expanding access to training.
In Canada, emergency management training is available through provincial, territorial, and municipal governments, as well as through community colleges, universities and private sector organizations. Public Safety is engaging the various stakeholder groups to promote common approaches to emergency management, including the adoption of standards and best practices.
