To assess how disaster and emergency management institutions perceive their importance in terms of Canadian society and the emergency management community. We propose to engage emergency management institutions in a survey that will provide insight into the current state of disaster and emergency management in Canada and answer questions such as: are there issues within the system that affect disaster management? Are the majority of emergency managers satisfied with their institution’s mandate and performance? Is the level of education and training of emergency managers adequate? If not, is there a demand to acquire higher education and/or training? Is there disconnect between policy decisions, research and practice?
