Grants to Northwest Territories and Yukon First Nations, Tribal councils, and Indigenous organizations for natural disaster preparedness and mitigation projects. Funding is intended to support local small-scale, non-structural projects that mitigate against disasters, like:

  • Flooding
  • Landslides
  • Tsunamis
  • Severe weather

Through the Emergency Management Assistance Program, project funding is available for initiatives, such as:

  • All-hazard risk assessments
  • Development and updating of emergency management plans
  • Exercising emergency management plans
  • Emergency management training/courses
  • Flood mapping
  • Landslide studies
  • Research or studies pertaining to disaster risk
  • Early tsunami warning systems
  • Public awareness
  • Funding to host an emergency management forum or workshop for regional First Nations communities

Examples of activities supported through this program include:

  • Emergency management programming (training and plan development): First Nation communities can build and enhance their emergency management capabilities on reserve through activities such as emergency management training, all-hazard risk assessments, emergency management response and evacuation plan reviews and updates, tabletop exercises that test and revise emergency response plans, community awareness of emergency management risks and response plans, collaboration with neighbouring communities, and authorities.
  • Non-structural mitigation and preparedness measures: First Nation communities can consider mitigating against disasters through non-structural efforts such as flood plain mapping, environmental studies, and landslide studies
  • Emergency management forums: First Nation organizations can plan and host regional forums on emergency management. Forums can focus on a specific aspect of emergency management, as prioritized by the regional First Nations, such as flood preparation and information sharing, or be more general such as all-hazard emergency management.

Eligible expenditures may include, but are not limited to:

  • Rental of equipment for mock exercises
  • Costs associated with signage, such as posters and other public awareness documentation
  • Tsunami equipment and installation fees, if located in a tsunami zone
  • Travel, accommodation, and incidentals for first nations participants to attend regional emergency management forums
  • Costs associated with hosting a regional emergency management forum including venue and equipment rentals
  • Administrative fees, limited to 10% of the total funding request
