How it Works
People move, landscapes and the environment change, industries come and go, and disasters will still occur. Rural, remote, First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities have been affected by hurricanes, wildfires, water contamination and an assortment of other hazards. Culture, language, livelihood options and Traditional Knowledge have flourished in some areas, while other communities have faced numerous challenges.
Building community disaster resilience is an ongoing, year-round process aimed at strengthening a community’s ability to respond to disaster. This site guides you and your community team through the Community Disaster Resilience Planning (CDRP) process.
