Response to humanitarian crises

The Government of Canada acts quickly and appropriately when it receives requests for assistance from countries facing disasters, conflicts, or acute food insecurity.

Canada's response is the result of close cooperation among Global Affairs Canada humanitarian officers, Canadian representatives in the field, representatives of other government departments, and international and Canadian humanitarian partners, such as the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the United Nations World Food Programme.
