In partnership with First Nations communities, provincial and territorial governments and non-government organizations, Indigenous Services Canada’s Emergency Management Assistance Program (EMAP) helps communities on reserve access emergency assistance services.
EMAP provides funding to First Nations communities so they can build resiliency, prepare for natural hazards and respond to them using the 4 pillars of emergency management:
To be eligible for funding under the EMAP, the emergency event must have impacted, or the proposed project must directly support, First Nations located on:
- a reserve, as defined in s. 2 (1) of the Indian Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. I-5
- lands set aside in Yukon as per Cabinet Directive (Circular No. 27) entitled Procedure for Reserving Land in the Yukon and Northwest Territories (1955)
- lands formerly defined as a reserve or lands set aside which now form part of modern treaty settlement lands
When emergency response and recovery needs go beyond the capacity of the individual citizens and First Nations or tribal councils, EMAP can help.
EMAP reimburses response and recovery activities due to emergencies, helping the community recover in a timely, durable and holistic way. Eligible emergencies include ongoing or imminent:
Deadline DateThere is no deadline to apply for disaster recovery, evacuation costs and emergency planning.
