Emergency Management Exemplary Service Award
Federal/Provincial and Territorial Ministers recognize the work being done across Canada to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters.
The Emergency Management Exemplary Service Award is a prestigious recognition for exceptional service and achievement. This award, a partnership between provincial, territorial and federal governments, recognizes recipients who have achieved excellence in their respective fields. Across Canada, there are many deserving individuals and groups working on emergency management, such as community-based volunteers, people working in all levels of government in emergency management organizations, and Indigenous communities.
Awards are granted in five categories:
- Resilient Communities;
- Search and Rescue Volunteers;
- Search and Rescue Employees;
- Youth; and
- Outstanding Contribution to Emergency Management
Each year, provincial, territorial and federal governments may present awards in each category to deserving individuals or groups of up to 20 individuals.
Nomination processes vary by province and territory and by award category. Public Safety Canada is now accepting federal nominations for all categories and Search and Rescue for all jurisdictions. Provincial and territorial governments are leading the nomination process for the Resilient Communities, Youth, and Outstanding Contribution to Emergency Management categories in their jurisdictions.
