Rapid Response Network

Thanks to the leadership and support of caring businesses and organizations across the country, we can rapidly mobilize Canadians when humanitarian disasters occur.

Our Rapid Response Network comprises media partners, corporate leaders and supporters that enable us to inform, educate and solicit the Canadian public. When every minute counts, this network ensures our response to humanitarian crises is immediate and far-reaching. We welcome the participation of new partners who want to help make a difference. Contact us to discuss how we can better work together.

Media partners

Our media partners form the backbone of our Rapid Response Network. Canadian media play a leading role in educating Canadians and translating compassion into action in times of need. We supply the latest news and information from the field, public service announcements and other appeal content which they help disseminate to Canadians across the country. This collaborative approach achieves maximum awareness and cost-effectiveness. It makes the process of responding to sudden and overwhelming events clear and simple. Together, we can have a tremendous impact.
