The Canadian Red Cross is part of the largest humanitarian network in the world, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity in Canada and around the world.   Our network is vast, but our approach is simple. All Red Cross programs and activities are guided by the Fundamental Principles of Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary service, Unity and Universality.

The core services Canadian Red Cross offers are as follows:

Emergency and Disaster Management: The Canadian Red Cross mobilizes its vast network of volunteers to assist when a disaster strikes, working in collaboration with local authorities and other agencies to address the immediate needs of those affected. The Canadian Red Cross also contributes to international disaster responses by raising funds, as well as deploying resources and trained aid workers to support the local Red Cross.

Capacity building: The Canadian Red Cross also actively helps communities prepare for and reduce the impact of disasters before they happen by working with both governments and individuals to ensure they’re ready when the time comes.


Prevention and Safety: Through first aid training and water safety programming, the Canadian Red Cross helps Canadians be better equipped to prevent and treat injuries at home and in the workplace, as well as how to be safe in and around the water.

Respect Education: The Canadian Red Cross has programs and tools to help prevent violence, harassment and bullying, and to promote healthy relationships.


Community Health Services: The Canadian Red Cross is a leader in supporting Canadians to remain living in their homes safely and with dignity through innovative and compassionate community health services. A wide range of community support services are offered by the Red Cross to provide daily supports to older adults, vulnerable people, and their caregivers.
