Public Safety Canada
Public Safety Canada ensures coordination across all federal departments and agencies responsible for national security and the safety of Canadians.
Public Safety Canada works with five agencies and three review bodies, united in a single portfolio and all reporting to the same minister. We also work with other levels of government, first responders, community groups, the private sector and other nations.
We are in the process of moving our services and information to Canada.ca.
Our current Public Safety Canada website will remain available until the move to Canada.ca is complete.
