The Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs was pleased to provide its recommendations to the consultations of the Federal Finance Committee in advance of Budget 2020.


This year, CAFC asked:

  • That the Federal Government consider the formation of an entity similar to the
    US based Federal Emergency Management Agency’s US Fire Administration
    (i.e. a national fire advisor)
  • That the Federal Government invest $2.5M to provide all firefighters with mental
    health awareness training; and that it continues to support and clarify the
    expected outcomes from the federal framework for PTSD and the $30M/five
    years dedicated in Budget 2018 to public safety research and treatment.
  • That the Federal Government earmark $50M per year to ensure that fire
    departments are equipped to respond to innovation
  • That the Federal Government earmark an additional $30M for the re-introduction
    of a modified Joint Emergency Preparedness Program, while maintaining the
    stable ongoing funding for Heavy Urban Search and Rescue.


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