There are three levels of Emergency Management Organizations in Canada: federal, provincial and municipal.

Federally, Emergency Preparedness Canada works with all federal departments and agencies and is guided by legislated policies to ensure that the following objectives are met:

  • Secure and preserve the well-being of people in Canada, their property and the environment from the harmful effects of emergencies;
  • Provide leadership in working toward improved emergency planning and preparedness in Canada
  • Develop a credible national capability to meet emergencies of all types;
  • Work closely and cooperatively with the provinces and territories to develop adequate and reasonably uniform standards of emergency services across Canada.

EMO Nova Scotia is the provincial agency that deals with province-wide emergencies and is covered by legislation enacted in 1990.
