Volunteering

CDART consists entirely of volunteers

There are many volunteer opportunities with CDART as shown below.  Persons who wish to respond during a disaster are required to have some cross-training with their provincial Emergency Social Services (ESS) in addition to their CDART-specific training courses. Find out more about training!
