About Us | Humanitarian Coalition

The Humanitarian Coalition brings together Canada's leading aid agencies to finance relief efforts in times of international humanitarian crises.

As a joint Canadian approach to humanitarian response, the Humanitarian Coalition is a "one-stop-shop" for all Canadians during times of international humanitarian crises. The seven member agencies of the Humanitarian Coalition work together to reduce unnecessary competition, inform the public on humanitarian needs, increase the impact of Canadian humanitarian responses and reduce administrative costs.

During humanitarian emergencies, member agencies speak to Canadians with one voice, provide direct access to disaster and response information, coordinate spokespersons and share resources, including a single phone centre, website and communications team. When disaster strikes, each member agency brings its specific expertise to implementing humanitarian programs.
