Humanitarian Workforce: COVID-19 and other large-scale emergencies


The Supporting a Humanitarian Workforce to Respond to COVID-19 and Other Large-Scale Emergencies program supports non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to provide assistance to jurisdictions in Canada.

Funding from this program helps eligible organizations build capacity and deploy resources to respond to emergencies including the COVID-19 pandemic or other large-scale emergencies such as wildfires and floods. For example, this program can provide funding for an NGO to temporarily deploy nurses to assist with vaccination, following a Request for Federal Assistance from a province or territory.
