The Capability Improvement Process
The Capability Improvement Process (CAIP) is a whole-of-government approach to the collection and analysis of government response activities for both exercises and incidents. It provides a standardized approach to collect, store and share observations and recommendations, including best practices, with other federal institutions. Overall, the CAIP supports the Government of Canada by tracking observations and recommendations (affecting two or more federal institutions) identified during exercises and incidents and implementing corrective actions.
The CAIP promotes collaboration and consultation between Public Safety Canada (PS) and other federal institutions to successfully meet Public Safety's collective goal to build a safe and resilient Canada.
The Capability Improvement Process is generally undertaken after each significant national exercise or incident. The CAIP will:
- produce an After Action Report (AAR) or After Incident Report (AIR) respectively, which include recommendations to improve response capabilities;
- outline tools used to summarize what occurred during the exercise or incident;
- identify issues which arose, and the solutions implemented; and
- review responses during the event or incident.
The CAIP matrix is used to:
- identify the proposed corrective actions;
- identify the primary federal institution(s) responsible; and
- identify the timeline for their implementation.
