UPDATE:  Standing Committee on Finance releases its recommendations for the Federal Budget. Echoes CAFC call for access to R2MR.   Read the report here


The Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs was pleased to provide its recommendations to the consultations of the Federal Finance Committee in advance of Budget 2018.


CAFC asked the government for:

  1. funding to support interim measures to improve access to mental health care and prevention programs
  2. creation of a research fund that would allow for the funding required to complete building code applications and other source and infrastructure studies impacting the fire service and
  3. maintain the volunteer firefighter tax credit while ensuring that employment and insurance acts do not penalize those who volunteer for the fire service.

On September 28, President of the CAFC, Chief Ken Block and Executive Director Dr. Tina Saryeddine will present our submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance.


We welcome and encourage members to share the brief with your federal MP, staff and partners. It is available in both official languages.


Please read our submission here. Chief Block's remarks here. Watch the recording here (CAFC appears at 15:44).
