The IAEM-Canada Region became the first region outside the United States in 2003 under the previous IAEM structure. The IAEM-Canada Region became the IAEM-Canada Council (one of seven Councils worldwide) in 2007, when the current organizational structure went into effect. The IAEM-Canada President, currently Paula Gibson, CRSP, ABCP, AEMCA, serves as the representative of the Council on the IAEM-Global Board.
IAEM Canada’s Mission is to advance the profession by promoting the principles of emergency management; to serve its members by providing information, networking and professional development opportunities; and to advance the emergency management profession.
