Our Partners

Canadian Non-Profits work together to offer various services to the HWF.

SARVAC partners with a number of organizations to be able to deliver emergency response and recovery services to communities in need. These partners include Public Safety Canada, Provincial, Territorial & Indigenous Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), and our Non-Government Organization (NGO) partners with whom we deliver emergency response and recovery services.

The Government of Canada, through Public Safety Canada, provides important financial support for SARVAC’s HWF Program. During specific responses SARVAC works with the AHJs to deliver these important emergency services. An agreement for these response services are articulated in an Incident Specific Service Agreement.
