About the program

Search and rescue organizations can apply for funding for projects that improve search and rescue response or prevention and align with national priorities, such as training programs, equipment purchases, R&D projects, prevention or awareness campaigns, or multijurisdictional exercises.

The national SAR program refers to the collective activities of governmental and non-governmental organizations in Canada having a primary or supporting role in the delivery of search and rescue response or prevention.

The program’s goal is a Canada where the critical importance of search and rescue is reflected in a multi-jurisdictional approach to promoting individual, collective and organizational behaviors that minimize the risk of injury or loss of life while maintaining timely and effective response services.

Provincial and territorial governments, for-profit and not-for-profit Canadian organizations and volunteer associations, and academia can be eligible recipients for SAR NIF funding.
