Please note that these addresses are only for Search andRescue nominations (federal level, and all provinces/territories), and federal nominations in the Resilient Communities, Youth, and Outstanding Contribution to Emergency Management categories.

Nominations sent to these addresses may be considered in a different category, as appropriate.

Additionally, if it is determined by the EMESA administrators that the scope of the nominee's achievements relates more to a different jurisdiction (e.g. provincial/territorial instead of federal), the nominator will be informed, so he/she can send the nomination to the appropriate jurisdiction.
