Whom we work with

CDART works well with local authorities including municipalities and regional districts. Our local teams work closely with ESS (Emergency Social Services), the RCMP, Ministry of Agriculture representatives and PEP (Provincial Emergency Program) personnel.

CDART volunteers will deploy to specific areas of disaster/emergency once requested and will report to ESS teams in local communities or to the Ministry of Agriculture as required. 

CDART works with Emergency Social Services at Reception Centres registering animals that need sheltering or evacuation during an emergency/disaster.  CDART also can determine if an Animal Intake Facility needs to be established in order to manage sheltering of evacuated animals.
