Does the Government of Canada respond to all natural disasters abroad?

Not directly. Every year, there are millions of natural hazards around the world and hundreds of natural disasters. Year-round, Canada works closely with disaster-prone countries, as well as with the United Nations, the International Federation of Red Cross/Crescent Societies (IFRC) and other non-governmental partners, to ensure that they have the capacity and tools necessary to respond themselves to disasters in an effective and timely manner, and that national and local governments have the assistance they need to reduce their vulnerability to hazards and improve their own disaster prevention and preparedness capacities. In addition, Canada, through CIDA, makes financial contributions to several standby systems, such as the United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) teams and the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (CDERA), and is exploring additional ways to support rapid responses.
